Carolyn has been fascinated about the concept of peace since childhood and before joining Place for Hope, spent over 25 years working in the humanitarian, international development and peacebuilding sectors around the world, often in places of war, extreme poverty, repressive discrimination and exclusion of those most vulnerable. Her passion for peacemaking in its most holistic sense, is deeply rooted in her Christian faith and experiences around the world living and working beside people with different faiths, cultures, beliefs, worldviews and life experiences. Although Carolyn grew up in Australia, she settled back in her native UK in 2014 to focus on local peacemaking and conflict transformation and loves the 4 different seasons here (& really loves snow), cycling, and time spent with God and nature on long daily walks with her dog, Pace (Italian for peace).
A quote I love...
Peace, in fact, is not the absence of anything, but rather the ultimate affirmation of what can be. – Rabbi K. Cohen
