Meet Carole Rose

 

Carole moved from Cincinnati to the Lehigh Valley in 1964, and shortly after, she began a career as a preschool teacher at the JCC. After teaching for 18 years, she took a variety of jobs at the JCC, including adult programming, fundraising, Program Director, and running the JCC day camp before retiring. Her main volunteer involvement was founding The Perfect Fit for Working Women, an organization which gives economically disadvantaged women an outfit for a job interview and, if hired, women are eligible to come back and get more outfits free of charge. After starting The Perfect Fit in 2000, she helped to found the art gallery at the JCC. She also enjoys doing small acts of kindness for a variety of people in the community. She has been happily married for 67 years! She enjoys spending time with her son and daughter and two grandchildren, and enjoys painting and swimming.
