Carol Patterson

Carol Patterson walked away from a successful career as an oil and gas accounting executive to follow her dreams. She started as a Calgary Zoo docent, creating a Flying Zoo program. The lessons she learned as the Zoo’s first pilot eventually led to her role as the Chairman of the Board and a new career as a tourism destination planner and professional speaker. Now you’ll find Carol flying economy class to emerging tourism destinations. As president of Kalahari Management Inc., Carol’s been chased by elephants, surrounded by cockroaches in Borneo, hobbled across Bhutan on a broken ankle, and nearly froze to death on a llama safari, but has found a way to succeed while doing what she loves.
