With more than 20 years of experience organizing, developing and managing corporate and political communications strategies and public policy initiatives, Caroline Roemer Shirley, has led the Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools from a membership of zero schools less than 3 years ago, to one of more than 80+ members from throughout the state.
Born and raised in Bossier City, Louisiana, Caroline left her home in 1991 to work around the country on political campaigns, eventually founding her own consulting firm, Roemer Bell, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Clients have included mayors, congressmen, governors and Fortune 500 companies. However, her Louisiana roots run deep and she made the decision to return to her home state in 2005.
Caroline currently resides in New Orleans with her husband, John, their 2 year old son Owen, and their spectacular 14 year old Chihuahua, Eddie.
