My mom’s love for her community is only rivaled by her love for her family. Carole Philipson is a doting and devoted mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, wife, sister, aunt, and friend.
It was those skills that made our move to Lakeland 24 years ago seamless. Moving mid-school year for a 13-year-old could have been catastrophic, but my mom was determined to quickly make Lakeland a home. And she did, identifying extra curricular activities and finding ways to get our family involved in the community.
