Meet AWCSF 2018 Communicator of the Year, Carole Wilson

AWCSF 2018 Communicator of the Year, Carole Wilson

Self-identified as a professional volunteer, daughter of her father’s patriotic bloodline dating as far back as the Revolutionary War (Dr. Henry Skilton) boasting a never-ending chronicle of reinvention, Carole Wilson is a women of determination, focus and values with the personal motto – Success is not how much you have but how much you give.

Her story begins in Massachusetts where she studied at Lasell College and earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education with a Psychology minor at Southern Connecticut State University and Quinnipiac University. While juggling a job and children she still managed to turn that minor into a full Psychology degree.

Fearlessly reinventing herself, she studied Interior design in 1970 by mail correspondence in New York (our current version of online studies). Homework was tough-going, but she became ASID certified. This paved the way for her joining the renowned furniture company, Miller & Rose for four years where she became the company’s #1 salesperson. Her expertise was required for sales training all through the states of Virginia, North & South Carolina.

She had always focused on raising the bar and looking for something different to be done. Her next adventure would come at Roanoke at Capitol Broadcasting in Sales for radio. Her self development continued to grow as she enrolled in Roanoke community college for Graphology or handwriting expert (which would later come in handy serving attorneys and/or private parties).

While handling a particular age demographic (25-54), she took pride in creating innovative proposals for advertisements with her client companies that set her apart from her peers by generating continuous sales ranging from $50,000 to $3,000,000.

After a long and successful career, in 1994 Carole traveled to Florida to be with her parents. Once again adapting a new skill set, she joins Merrill Lynch as a private secretary and later moves to Oppenheimer & Company as financial advisor. Sadly in 2008, she suffers a car crash waiting at a traffic light that radically altered her life path towards joining Boca Nursing Services as office manager. Predictably, she took it upon herself to do everything and be on call.

A decade later, she remains focused on her many causes and working independently as a Graphologist, recently participating in the investigation of authenticity for a last will and testament determining inheritance from a wealthy Asian businessman, through handwriting verification.

She served on the selection committee for the Junior League of Boca Raton earning Volunteer-of-the-Year/the “Go-Getter Award” from the Women Prosperity Network. Carole personifies the strength of a woman and her potential.

An avid networker, she has belonged to both the Boca Raton & Delray Beach Chambers of Commerce. Through her participation in various associations she seeks to support education for girls without access. She loves being counted alongside loving men and women who care about America. Her expertise in raising funds is only excelled by the joy she receives from giving back. Being involved is very important, it keeps you young, she points out. While working hard all her life, retirement only comes partly as she dedicates her time to helping others.

Junior Leagues of Boca Raton (2007)
