Carol is a NY based actress whose career began as a professional radio announcer. Upon graduating Emerson College she worked for major stations in Boston, NY and NJ. She is renowned for her show broadcast on WFDU-FM and syndicated on WAMU's 'Bluegrass Country'. Over the years she worked as a public relations manager (notably promoting a campaign featuring the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour Bus up the east coast and London). She also launched her own event planning company and appeared on TV's "Whose Wedding is it Anyway?" and "The Wedding Story".
In order to attend acting school she worked for Major League Baseball (MLB.com) full-time while also doing TV, films and theater before graduating from the William Esper Studios. Additional training includes the Atlantic Theater School and Upright Citizens Brigade.
She made her Carnegie Hall debut and shortly after landed the role of Yente, the matchmaker in the Bartlett Sher directed First North American National Tour of "Fiddler on the Roof". Working with the Broadway Creative Team, traveling across the country, playing landmark theaters to sold-out standing ovations while visiting major historic sites, museums and national parks for a year and a half (492 shows) is a highlight of her career.
Carol is married to musician Wayne Fugate, a mandolin player and guitarist whose credits include performing in the band of Steve Martin and Edie Brickell's show "Bright Star" on Broadway and the Equity National Tour. He arranged and performed the music for the internationally acclaimed film "A Bread Factory" starring Tyne Daley and Janeane Garofalo, written and directed by Patrick Wang.
