Carol Onstad

Carol Onstad was born in Boston but moved to Miami, Florida at a young age, and has lived in Miami Springs since 1968. She is blessed with a wonderful family. Most of her career was spent working for the Federal Reserve Bank, but since retirement she has enthusiastically thrown herself into active volunteering at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and creative planting in her garden. Her soiree into the art world brings with it her appetite for fun and a spirit of camaraderie.


Carol was an original member of the TBA until her passing on April 29th, 2018.
