Before I was elected to the State Legislature, and before serving two terms as Mayor of West Chester, I was a teacher. I like helping people, and so I have dedicated my life to public service. It is an honor and a pleasure serving the citizens of the 156th district.

As a former educator, and as a mother, Carolyn has prepared hundreds of kids for college, and knows what they need to succeed.
