About Us

Born and raised in Taneytown, Maryland, a small town in Carroll County, founder of Carroll Woman, Sharon Parker Scholze found there was a need for a woman’s publication and media outlet to support the woman and woman-owned business in Carroll County.   What initially started as a print publication has changed with the ever-changing world of print to an online community for the local woman to connect and support each other in all aspects of life.   After all,  we all need our “tribe” to turn to for guidance, empowerment, and support.

Carroll Woman Magazine is an online digital magazine, published by women and for women.   In addition to the magazine, we offer a local membership opportunity for woman,  giving them direct access to “member specific”  specials and “deals” not offered to the general public.  Carroll County woman can support each other in our engaging and empowering educational events.  Carroll Woman also offers unique sponsored content on our website and through our newsletters.

Let’s face it, being a woman can be tough some days, running and managing a family, driving kids to all of their functions, taking care of aging parents, trying to fit in a workout, eating healthy, keeping a marriage together, starting a new career, sending kids off to college, managing finances, whew, the list goes on!  I’m exhausted just thinking about it all!  It is my hope to deliver engaging and helpful information to make life a little less stressful and give Carroll Woman readers their own “tribe” to turn to for support.  Because we all know we can use all the help and support we can get some days.

Thank you for stopping by our about page and don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter and information on our special membership package for tons of local deals from local businesses.
