Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Carollyne has lived all over Canada, including Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Vancouver before settling in Calgary, Alberta. She has had a diverse career in education, public relations, marketing and consulting that has taken her on numerous adventures across Canada and much of the United States.
She loves to travel, and has had the opportunity to explore Europe, Mexico, and much of the Caribbean, where one of her passions is collecting turtle ornaments. (When you see her, ask her and she will explain more.) Her hobbies include golfing, reading fiction, listening to all types of music, and when time permits, escaping the winter cold to visit warm ocean climates. She is a lifetime member of Beta Sigma Phi. She is an active member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Edith Cavell Chapter #25 in Calgary, Alberta.
In 1999, the Province of Alberta bestowed upon her the designation of Alberta Marriage Commissioner. This has been one of the most rewarding parts of her life, allowing her to work with couples in love and having the privilege of marrying them. As far as she is concerned, there is nothing better than being able to help a couple seal their commitment and love for one another.
“Thank you for performing our wedding on such short notice. We were very thankful to have all the important people there, including our old dog, to be involved in the wedding party. The fact that you carried him with you down the aisle when he was a bit intimidated by the other guests made it even more special. Thank you for all of your great work and advice! We couldn’t have done it without you!”Maggie & Allan
