CAROLE JOY GELLINEAU,
Carole Joy Gellineau has always had an affinity for art. The New York native began honing her craft by making hand-painted greeting cards for friends and family as a child. But when she realized that there were no cards that depicted her culture in her neighborhood, she saw a business opportunity and created Carole Joy Creations, Inc. While Carole and her husband and business partner Victor have retired, they enjoy giving back to their community by volunteering. “Over the years there have been so many people who have helped me become the person I am. The least I can do is give something back to society.”
