Carol Gerard

Interim Director/Fundraising Chairperson

Carol fell in love with the Lake Tahoe area during a family vacation several years before being fortunate enough to retire here. Born and raised in the mid-west, Carol always loved the outdoors and is now thrilled that every day, it is only a few steps to being in the peace of our lovely forest surroundings.

After obtaining her undergraduate and graduate degrees in Biology from St. Louis University, she set off to experience life in sunny Los Angeles. For ten years, Carol shared her love of science teaching at a Catholic High School in Playa Del Rey. Wanting to expand her life experiences, she made a major transition to working in the Aerospace Industry by joining Hughes Aircraft Company’s Satellite Division. It was a very interesting and exciting 20 years and her career path took her to an Administrative Manager position.

Raising a child diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome did not allow much opportunity for volunteering but made Carol sensitive to the needs of those who struggle mentally, physically and emotionally every day of their lives. Feeling that her life has always been very blessed, volunteering at Bread & Broth is a way to ‘pay it forward’.

Carol began volunteering with Bread & Broth in January 2009 and has found it to be personally fulfilling and rewarding. Filling the remaining hours of her day, Carol is the Vice Commodore for the SLT Yacht Club and enjoys daily walks with her husband and spoiled dog, yard work, skiing, traveling and being with family and friends.
