Carolyn Carle

Community Relations Director

I am honored to serve as the Community Relations Director of Colonial Oaks at Braeswood.  Before joining the Colonial Oaks family, I was a hospice educator and liaison.  Working with seniors and their families brings me joy and has for the past 30 years.  Our residents bring so much love and happiness into my life every day. They teach me to cherish every moment.   I am passionate about assisting families in finding compassionate, dignified and quality care for their loved ones.

When I am not serving the senior community, you will find me in my garden, soaking up the sunshine.
