In 2015, Carole merged her business with KMG Private Wealth Management, a full-service financial planning firm based in Skokie, Illinois.

Carole lives with her husband, Andy, and their two rescued German Shepherds in Florida. Interesting fact about Carole: Upon graduating from college with a degree in Russian Studies, Carole was fluent in Russian, and almost pursued a career with the National Security Agency.
