Carol serves on the Global Volunteers Board and chairs the Reaching Children’s Potential Committee.
Lynn, a recently retired sales manager at Florida Trend, attributes her passion for Greece to her father, who was born in Crete and immigrated to the U.S. when he was seven. That’s the primary reason she chose a Global Volunteers program to Crete in 2013, and has returned twice since. Most recently, Lynn served on our Cuba program.
