Carol Coen is the nub around which our office works. Hers is the voice you hear when you call the IJN office. She joined the staff eight years ago.
Carol supervises the subscriptions, classifieds, mailings, advertising lists, hard copy archives and all manner of other details, not least, the crucial role of coffee fairy.
Throughout, her sense of humor remains intact.
Carol was born in Louisiana. Before joining the IJN, she had a career in nursing and nurse education.
Carol married Bob Coen in 2008. Bob is retired from Allyn International.
Carol is the proud mother of Shae (Dave) of Tampa, and Christopher (Barbara) in Chicago, and is Na Na to Eryn and Hanna in Tampa, and Michael in Chicago.
Carols passions include baseball, cooking, gardening, reading, needlework, jazz and blues and journaling each day.
She has dozens of houseplants that she tends to weekly, as well as those in the IJN office.
In addition to acquiring a husband, Carol has also become a dog owner. Just ask her about lovable mutts Mickey and Renzo.
