Hi, all.  My name is Carol Ashworth, and I am an ordained Cooperative Baptist minister, serving as a hospital chaplain in Richmond, VA.  I work diligently to keep a work-life balance, and generally do pretty well, although we all have our times.  Primarily, though, I seek to help our hospital staff learn better ways to cope.  My hospital is actually comprised of two separate campuses, one of which is a Level I trauma center, and the other is Level III; however, it specializes in stroke care and cancer care.

I am single and share a home with my elderly father, having lost my mother last year.  Sometimes my work life is less stressful than my home life!
