I am The Enlightened Pen, also known as Carol, a writer, editor, and manager with a passion for the written word. I’m drawn to systems and patterns, and I strive to live simply. I spend much of my time listening to music and conveying ideas through writing. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology and Sociology, and I have extensive experience in management, including grant writing and management. My current day job includes non-profit development and analysis. When I’m not working with words, I enjoy traveling, trying new things, and losing myself out in the woods.
