Carol Lewis | Treasurer

As a little girl, Carol thought she was born in a hotel. After all, her mother told her she arrived at the “Hotel Dieu” in St. Catharines, the city where she lived until the age of eight. Having spent most of her life in the Waterloo region, Carol has come full circle, settling back in the Niagara area.  After a successful career in insurance administration and management, Carol enjoys new challenges, now aligning her admin skills with her passion for the arts. She has worked with Carousel Players on their Playlinks program and also serves on the board of Chorus Niagara.  Carol’s love of theatre led her to first volunteer with Essential Collective Theatre as backstage crew for their production of ‘White Crow’. Since then she has never looked back. She is honoured to be part of such a talented and committed team at ECT!
