Bio: Dr. Carol Mattson. I am me, a child of God, driven by purpose to inspire others and make this world a better place. I proudly hold a Doctorate in Educational Leadership, a Master’s Degree in Counseling and the esteemed title MBTI® Master Practitioner. I am certified to administer and interpret the MBTI®, Strong Interest Inventory® and FIRO®, assessments. My twenty years of higher education experience consists of career development through teaching and counseling and 7+ years as an academic dean. My research examined positive and negative aspects of stress for community college executives and investigating personal qualities that contribute to successful careers. I am an adult reentry student who returned to college, married with children, at the age of 30. My college counselor inspired me and countless others to complete our education and this inspired me to author Women in Bloom: Personal Stories of Women Who Returned to College and Other Words of Inspiration.
