Carolyn Baltaz

Born in Burlington, Carolyn was raised and still resides in Kitchener with her husband, Michael, and their two children; Brooke and Logan. For several years after graduating from the Business Administration - Marketing program at Conestoga College, Carolyn worked in various businesses before returning to school at Humber College in Toronto from which she obtained her Funeral Service Diploma. For a further ten years, Carolyn worked as a licensed funeral director for Schreiter-Sandrock Funeral Home in Kitchener and Dignity Memorial. She ultimately gave up working full time in that industry after the birth of two children, to whom she prefers to dedicate her time. Carolyn joined Clifton Kok LLP located in Ayr, on a part-time basis in August 2011 and took on the role of full-time Administrator at the beginning of 2012, overseeing office services, facilities and systems.

Carolyn became a board member of BFO-Midwestern Region in 2009 taking the position of Chair in 2012. She lost her brother tragically in a car accident in 1995 and her father to cancer in 2011. Carolyn is proud to support BFO-Midwestern in their work and continues to support the organization through her work there and now as Chair for the Provincial Board of BFO.
