Tsegyalgar East welcomes Caroline Hotaling in her new role as Bookstore Manager and part-time administrator for the Shang Shung Institute of America

Caroline brings over 25 years of professional nonprofit experience to a new role at the Shang Shung Institute of America. A DCA member since 2013, you may know her from some time she spent living at the Tsegyalgar East schoolhouse in Conway last winter. Originally from the Adirondack mountains of New York State, she lived and worked on environmental health, environmental justice and community development along the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona for almost a decade, where she also became a practitioner. Caroline later worked for the Ms. Foundation for Women in NYC, a national women’s fund devoted to funding social justice programs across the U.S. A current SSI-USA board member, she will leave the board when she starts work at SSI. In addition to transitioning into Anna Bartenstein’s role in the bookstore, Caroline also looks forward to working closely with the entire SSI team to accomplish SSI-USA’s ambitious plans, including the accreditation of Tibetan Medicine.
