Carol also worked in the Department of Cultural and Historical Preservation of the Penobscot Nation, as a linguistic contact.

Dawnland Voices 2.0 an online journal devoted to Native New England and Northeast writing says of Carol and her poems: “Carol is highly respected in Maine for her work on revitalizing and educating the language of Penobscot. Perhaps because language is so important to her, she has a wonderful sense of sound, often smoothing out native words, place names, and last names in her lines.
