    Carol Schubert, DBA

    Dr. Carol Schubert founded, owned, and managed four businesses: three veterinary hospitals, and an online accredited continuing education company. She sold all four after 30 years of ownership and began teaching.

    While in business, Dr. Schubert was active in her community. She served as a city council member and mayor pro tem, vice president of the Chamber of Commerce, founder and president of Main Street, Tracy (an organization funded by a federal grant that she wrote through the Trust for Historic Preservation), and co-chairperson of the fundraising committee of the Arts Leadership Alliance charged with raising $16M to build an arts complex. Carol also served on two bank boards while living in California. Additionally, she founded and funded the $250,000 Golden Fund Scholarship program at St. Petersburg College in Florida that provides full academic scholarships to business students in veterinary technology.

    Dr. Schubert also founded and operated the not-for-profit Westside Wildlife Rehabilitation group in Tracy, California, a project that required federal and state licensing, and many volunteers. The group partnered with the International Baccalaureate Program to provide required volunteer hours for students.

    Dr. Schubert has two adult children, is an avid cyclist, and enjoys spending time at her pottery studio.
