Carol Metzker, Author, Speaker, Humanitarian Project Leader

Carol Metzker is a writer, frequent speaker, project leader, coauthor of the book, Appreciative Intelligence: Seeing the Mighty Oak in the Acorn, and author of the book, Facing the Monster: How One Person Can Fight Child Slavery. She earned a bachelor’s degree at Penn State and a master’s degree at George Mason University in Virginia.

Writing assignments about international business practices and polio eradication took her to India in 2004 where she met an 11-year-old girl rescued from slavery. The encounter led Carol into the dark subject of human trafficking and to a special shelter not far from her front door. It also sparked projects to aid survivors of modern-day slavery locally and overseas. Carol is a recipient of a WCPL Literacy Hero Award and Rotary International’s highest honor, the Service Above Self award
