Property Inspector / Meet & Greet Staff
Carol has been part of the Paradise Retreats Property Services team since 2018. Originally from the Bay Area, she earned her BA degree in Fine Arts from San Jose State University with an emphasis in sculpture/bronze casting, and a minor degree in Italian, which she speaks fluently.
For over 25 years Carol worked as a brand consultant for global consumer products companies such as Coca Cola, Kraft, Nestle and Unilever. Based in the US and Europe, she set up & managed international operations as Managing Director/CEO for Landor Associates, EnterpriseIG, and Addison Design.
In 2006, she started her own consulting practice to help small businesses with sales, marketing, new business development strategies, and coaching. In 2015, she moved to Panama to manage several vacation rental apartment buildings in Panama City. Given her appreciation for art & architecture, her management experience, and also having stayed at spectacular private estates throughout Europe, Carol immensely enjoys assisting our homeowners with the care of their beautiful properties.
“Working at Paradise Retreats and living in Santa Barbara are two truly wonderful experiences. We have a great team at the office where everyone is caring, supportive and working hard to do our best for our clients and guests. As a recent resident of Santa Barbara, I am enjoying the beauty, the weather and most of all, the proximity to my family and friends.”
