Carol is the Founder and creative genius behind Seek Collective. Carol, an introverted Aquarius spends any free time she has in her garden, on hikes with her dog Brisket or baking focaccia.

She is currently binging Vera, Shetland and UK Love Island. She describes her style as playful, sophisticated, eclectic, utilitarian with some prep. She loves listening to the podcast Crime Junkies and watching any Harry Potter movie. The last book Carol read was The Well-Gardened Mind by Sue Stuart-Smith. Her ideal vacation includes either exploring a place through immersing herself in that culture or going somewhere remote in nature to catch up on rest. Her favorites have been India, Mexico City, Paris, Morocco, and she hopes to explore Japan one day soon. Carol always wants to support and promote what true sustainable and socially responsible fashion production is and in doing so highlight and encourage the people involved. Carol’s hope is to make Seek Collective successful so that all those she works with benefit. For 2022, Carol is hoping to finally travel some this year!
