Carol participated in the June 2012 MediaStorm Methodology Workshop. She had the following to say about her experience:


We are all a people of story. Effectively recognizing and telling stories is critical to any profession, communicating history, dreams for the future. A week of methodology with Brian and his remarkable team has given me additional focus and renewed energy to improve how we share story across all platforms. MediaStorm's comprehensive, week-long Methodology workshop generated new ideas for future work and has inspired me to go deeper with our work in the Episcopal Diocese of Texas. Thank you all so much!
