Carolyn Marlin’s passion is educating children and young teens across the state of Utah and beyond.

Currently, in addition to directing Bags of Love Utah, Carolyn teaches skiing to neurodiverse children at The National Ability Center.

Carolyn served as an assistant student teacher at The Waterford School in Sandy, Utah.
She spends her summers both working as a lead camp counselor at Camp Beech Creek, a camp for kids who have severe ADHD and autism and serving as a Research Assistant in the WRaP program, a division of The Frist Center for Autism and Innovation at Vanderbilt University.  She also previously served as a camp counselor at The Waterford Schools summer day camp as well as Camp Hobe, a camp for children with cancer.

She recently completed an internship at the Natural History Museum of Utah, where she served as an Exhibit Explainer, engaging children in hands on learning. She has worked for Utah State University at Swaner Nature Camp, leading elementary school children in fun and exciting scientific projects.

Most recently, she was selected to serve on the 2021 board of the UServe Utah Youth Council and was a recipient of the 2022 Utah Youth Humanitarian award and 2021 winner of The Deseret News award.

When she is not teaching, you will find her playing fierce soccer, skiing with friends and family, babysitting, playing with her puppies, Allie and Charlie, and drinking Starbucks lattes.
