Carolyn Herman is a wife and mother of two children living in the suburbs of Denver, Colorado.
Carolyn’s heart for Africa was born in the summer of 1996 when she spent two months in rural Kenya working with widows, orphans and struggling families. That summer changed her life in many ways; the most enduring of which was a heart that beats for the needs of African children.
Upon her return from Kenya, she graduated from Purdue University and went on to receive a Master’s in Counseling Psychology from the University of Colorado. For several years, she had a private counseling practice specializing in adolescents and families. Carolyn currently serves as a pastor to middle school students at Greenwood Community Church in Greenwood Village, Colorado, where she daily tries to spark compassion in the hearts of students for people in poverty both locally and abroad.
JabuAfrica combines Carolyn’s passion for Africa and philanthropy, and she is excited to see how it can change the lives of many people throughout the African continent.
