Art from the Soul's US and International Representative.
Carol Rodriguez of Higginsville, MO, outside of Kansas City, joins the Art from the Soul team in representing Julie in the US and abroad. Carol has significant sales experience, being one of the first account executives for Discover Card. Carol traveled throughout the US, selling businesses on accepting Discover, six months before the first card was ever issued. Carol was also the person who introduced credit card acceptance to the van lines and fast food industry. During this time she became one of the top and most respected reps in the nation and was promoted to Vice President of Relationship Management where she was responsible for the nation’s largest accounts. Carol has been profiled in The Wall Street Journal on several occasions. Following her family to Washington, she fell in love with boats and became a broker for the leading wooden boat broker on the west coast.
Carol’s love of art and the stars began with her family when she was young. One of her fondest memories is of the times she and he father sat in reclining lawn chairs looking for shooting stars during mid-west summer evenings. During family travels, Carol was exposed to art. From trips to the Chicago Institute of Art with its memorable Monet exhibit, to galleries across the US and Mexico, her appetite for art grew. During her many years with Discover Card, Carol made the most of her travels by visiting art museums throughout the US.
Carol says “I am proud to be representing Art from the Soul. It combines the ultimate of my interests and expertise.” Julie says, “It is exciting to have someone of Carol’s caliber, sales experience and enthusiasm representing me. Already her ideas are blossoming into new markets for Art from the Soul.” Welcome aboard Carol.
