She is a freelance writer, workshop facilitator, face and body painter, slam and page poet, and the host of Shaw Spotlight Saskatoon’s literary arts program ‘Lit Happens’. She was part of the Tonight it’s Poetry team that competed at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Guelph in 2019.

Her visual artwork has been exhibited in art galleries across Saskatchewan and northern Canada. A CD of women’s drum songs, on which Carol was featured, was recently nominated for a Prairie Music Award.
