Wellington, Florida -February 3, 2010- About Carol Coleman: Coleman grew up in Pennsylvania and began working as an equestrian trainer at Overpeck Stables in Leonia, NJ, in the 1970's. While in New Jersey, Coleman met a handsome equestrian named Harvey and fell in love. Eventually she moved to New Jersey full-time with Harvey and their family.

Educational Background: Undergraduate Degree at Temple University Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Three Masters Degrees from Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey including Speech Pathology, Audiology, and Learning Disabilities.

Residence In Wellington: Before becoming a permanent resident at the Equestrian Club Estates eleven years ago, Coleman was a seasonal resident splitting her time between New Jersey and Wellington.

Professional Background: Coleman has been a judge for the United States Equestrian Federation and the Canadian Equestrian Federation in hunters, jumpers, and hunt seat equitation for thirty years. Other than her equestrian involvement, she was a Speech Pathologist and Audiologist in private practice and in the public school system, and she was a member of the Cleft Palate Team at Children's Hospital in Philadelphia. Coleman added professor to her name when she taught at Manhattan College in their speech and language department.

Entrepreneur: Coleman became an entrepreneur in 1985 when she developed a ballroom dance shoe company called Fancy Feel Dance Shoes Extraordinaire. Within eight years, Coleman had turned her small shoe business into a 172-store franchise. With such success she sold her business to Fred Astaire whose headquarters are in Florida.

Plan For The Village Of Wellington: Coleman would like to restore the superior Parks and Recreation programs. She would also like to see a fair, open, and transparent government.

Lastly, Coleman would like to see the use of K-Park land (the land off 441), which the residents have been paying $40,000 a month to pay off the loan, be put to a public referendum. She feels the land's use should be decided by the taxpayers.
