Caroline began her professional career as a journalist in 1974. After completing her Master's degree, she co-founded Stillpoint Publishing in 1983 in Walpole, New Hampshire. From 1983 to 1990, Caroline worked as head of the editorial department for her publishing company, which produced an average of ten books per year in the field of human consciousness and holistic health. Simultaneously Caroline began her career as a medical intuitive. In 1984, Caroline met C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., a Harvard-trained neurosurgeon who had an interest in the science of medical intuition. They began a colleagueship that continues to this day. During their early years together, Norm helped Caroline develop her skills by having her conduct health readings on his patients. During Norm's interview with a patient in his office in Springfield, Mo., he would phone Caroline for her assessment of the patient's health. The only information Caroline requires is the name and age of a patient and his or her permission. From that data, Caroline is able to profile the patient's physical/psychological/emotional and family history.
