About Instructor: Carole Nimaroff
A committed PLSP volunteer, Carole credits the support group she attended through PLSP for giving her and her husband the strength to endure their long, and painful journey towards parenting. Having experienced multiple first trimester pregnancy losses, Carole understands the feelings of deep grief, fear and hopelessness. Her personal philosophy is: “take control of the process and the journey.” Carole is not only deeply compassionate, but she is also a beacon of strength, endurance and hope. Carole is a practicing attorney and mom of four grown children.
PLSP’s support groups are led by professionally-trained facilitators who have experienced loss themselves.
