Carolyn Eckman

Administrative Assistant

After graduating from college, Carolyn decided to make Santa Cruz her new home. She fell in love with dance fitness and became a Certified Group Fitness Instructor, dedicated to health and wellness. You may have taken a barre, spin, strength training or U-jam class with her at one of the local gyms, or seen her cruising around town on her Vespa!

Carolyn loves to travel. Some of her favorite places include Mykonos, Barcelona and Guadalajara, and in 2014, she gathered her friends and family in New Orleans for her wedding. In 2017, she and her husband welcomed their first baby, Tabitha, into the world. Her weekends are devoted to family time, and her daughter is now her new passion.

Carolyn brings with her a wealth of customer service and administrative experience, as well as a bright smile and a can-do attitude. She has raised the bar (by at least a mile) on the office dress code, and we are all in awe of her fabulous sense of style and professionalism. Say goodbye to the Uggs, Crocs, yoga and cargo pants. And that wrinkled sweatshirt with the barely noticeable stains on the sleeves that you picked up off the bedroom floor and put on this morning? Think again. There's a new style sheriff in town.

She graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz, with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics.
