Compassionate field general

Carolann grew up the youngest of two in a sleepy Albany, N.Y., neighborhood, working at a gourmet chocolate shop in the winter and saving lives poolside come summertime. She loves quality time with her three kiddos, exercising, baking at altitude, reading, sharing a bottle of red wine with her husband and hanging out with their two spoiled cats, Stoli and Loki. Carolann was exposed to her family’s Czechoslovakian culture at a very young age, so it’s a wonder kolaches aren’t listed as one of her favorite foods. She prefers sushi and Indian fare and refuses to eat cauliflower or olives.
