Carolyn Stritter 

Carolyn was born and schooled in Toledo, Ohio. She graduated as an RN from Mercy College, and later with Bachelor of Science in Professional Arts from St Joseph's College in Maine.
Having moved to Ft Lauderdale, Fl, her interest peaked as Hospice was evolving in the area. She went on to specialize in Hospice care, continued her education and became a certified Hospice nurse and served as regional membership chairman of National Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association.

Music has always been her passion, starting with violin, then hand bells, and now her domra. She played in the high school and college orchestras, as well as the American Balalaika Symphony. Her joy now is playing with NFC's orchestra since it's conception.
