TTN's Carol Oswald's Story in Marlo Thomas's New Book

March 30, 2014

Actress, author, and activist Marlo Thomas burst onto the scene with her pioneering role as the star of television’s That Girl.  Over the course of a groundbreaking career, she has been honored with four Emmy Awards, the George Foster Peabody Award for Television Excellence, a Golden Globe, a Grammy, and the Ellis Island Medal of Honor for exceptional humanitarian efforts.  

Inducted into the Broadcasting Hall of Fame, she 
created Free to Be…You and Me, a project that became a platinum album, bestselling book, award-winning television special, and a stage show.  She is also the author of six New York Times bestselling books, including the memoir Growing Up Laughing.  Her new book is a collection of empowering stories about women who have reinvented themselves in extraordinary ways.

Carol Oswald has been a member of the Central Ohio Chapter of TTN since December of 2009. She worked for IBM for 24 years in various technical, sales and management capacities. She was a Principal in their consulting business, and managed one of their technical resource centers. She took a buy out package, and enjoyed the chance to pursue her interest in wellness and self care. She got her license in massage therapy, opened an office with a business partner, and provided classroom space for others to teach yoga and continuing education.  She became actively involved in TTN and hosted several meetings in her classroom space.

Early in 2011, Carol closed her massage office, wanting to simplify her work life, and hoping to create space for something new. Her timing was good. The founding member and Chapter Lead decided it was time to step down in May of that year, so Carol took on this new responsibility. She loves working with the wonderful women she has met through TTN.

Carol's is one among many of the inspiring stories of change - of using all that you've learned throughout your life and putting it to use as you chart out your future.
