Born in San Jose, Costa Rica, North American Associate Karol Feld shares, “I love the idea of being a healing presence. Inspiring others is great.” In 2015, Karol attended one of our The Way of The Healer workshops in Philadelphia, led by Sister Miriam Therese (MT) Winter. Remembering she had sung the songs of MT in grade school, she believed she was meant to connect with our Community.
After graduating from high school in 1974, Karol attended college in San Jose, studying business with an emphasis in marketing. She met her husband-to-be while he was in Costa Rica on vacation. Married in 1985, the couple has two daughters and lives in Philadelphia.
While working for a counseling agency as an authorization manager, Karol developed a knack for computers. Her husband encouraged her to use her computer skills to teach. When an opportunity opened up at a local Catholic high school, Karol happily accepted the position. In addition to 11 years of teaching digital and computer applications, Karol also taught Spanish for two years and was the activities coordinator for nine. She now works at Sr. Hubert’s High School teaching graphic design part-time and also works in the school’s office.
