Carol F. Gary
Enjoying her first retirement in 2008 after 25 years with the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department, Adaptive Recreation Services, she took on the role as Interim Executive Director and embraced the opportunity to continue the work and vision of our association.
Carol comes with a broad background in office and fiscal management, event planning and implementation, staff and volunteer supervision, presentations and public speaking, improving the quality of life for those with and without disabilities, and promoting the power of outdoor recreation.
Her volunteer activities include those same skill sets in sharing her time so others can enjoy the outdoors through kayaking, cross country skiing, hiking, cycling, swimming, backpacking, and camping and is also a proud Mom of three children and three grandchildren.
In early 2016 Carol "retired" for a second time from APRA. She is currently still working in a special projects roll.
