Carol Hicks, 850-438-5022, firstname.lastname@example.org
Manager, Pollak Industries and Community-Based Employment Carol Hicks was born and raised in southern California (the mountains and small towns… not Los Angeles!). She earned her college degree at University of California at Santa Barbara and came to Florida in 1979 while traveling with her cousin. Like so many others, they both got “sand in our shoes” and decided to stay. Carol found a job with Arc Gateway in 1981 at Pollak Training Center as a behavior assistant. She transferred to Pollak Industries in 1982 as a skills trainer and moved up to vocational evaluator and then as the developmental training program coordinator until 1990, when she left that program to manage the agency’s Community-Based Employment. Carol now manages both Community-Based Employment and Pollak Industries.
