  Paula Hankins was the Director at Carroll Mansion over the two plus years we jointly developed the All American House at Carroll Mansion. On top of being a highly knowledgeable historic house expert, she is an incredible administrator, educator and strategic thinker. It takes and incredible amount of vision to work with us on an All American House, and without her guidance and hard work, these programs could never happen.
