Board Member, Founder

Carol Brown

After 18 years of coaching competitive cheer – including 11 years as founder and head coach for the USA Stars – Carol has retired from the company and currently offers cheer services for cheer choreography and music as an independent contractor.  She carries with her the memories of USASF affiliation, multiple championship teams, and the knowledge that she had reached her primary goal of creating an environment for athletes to acquire not just cheer skills, but to develop much needed life skills that would carry them beyond their days at the gym.  Coaching and creating the USA Stars has been a wild ride with lots of ups and downs, but Carol feels completely confident that the new leadership will take the company to even greater heights... She was aiming for the stars but believes the new program will go beyond those dreams ... in both successes and individual growth.

Carol was born in England and immigrated (with her family) to the United States in 1956.  She became a citizen in 1963 and is very “proud to be an American’ - which is why the name of this organization is more than just letters, colors, and a mascot. Although she is grateful for her English heritage, Carol reminds everyone that she is a Brit by birth - but an American by choice. 

Carol still does free-lance graphics for select clients.  She cheered for Cumberland Valley in the sixties and has been very happily married to her high-school sweetheart, Bill (a Senior Vice-President and Branch Manager for Dewberry, Inc.) since 1971.  They have two sons; Michael who lives in Phoenix with his wife, Tracey, son Mason and daughter Cailyn; and Jeremy who resides in Howell, NJ with his wife, Lauren and daughter Olive.  These days Carol is piling up “air” miles flying to Phoenix and putting on “road” miles traveling to New Jersey... and thoroughly spoiling the grandkids!
