Carl attended St. Paul’s School and Colby College. After graduating from Colby, he returned to St. Paul’s to teach, coach, run a house (dormitory) and work in the admissions office. Truly enjoying the admissions work, Carl left St. Paul’s to become Director of Admissions at Tabor Academy. After seven years in beautiful Marion, MA, New Hampshire called him back home, and he became Assistant Head of School at Cardigan Mountain School. 13 years later, when his youngest son was soon to graduate from Cardigan, he was named Director of Development at Kimball Union Academy. Soon thereafter, he was asked if he might like to join the founding team of what was to become the Mountain Valley Treatment Center. He said “yes,” and the rest is history.
Mountain Valley has given Carl the opportunity to have a true impact on the lives of some amazing kids. While he loved the first 30 years of his career working in traditional boarding schools, the twelve years spent helping Mountain Valley grow into the special place it is today were truly special, and he is grateful for the opportunity.
Carl and his wife, Cari, a former member of Mountain Valley’s leadership team, have three adult sons and six young grandchildren. Their days have been filled – and continue to be filled – with lots of athletic endeavors – both as participants and spectators – and through athletics they are fortunate to have made incredible friends and memories.
