The Person Behind the Voice – Carole Thuringer

By Stephanie Elsen

Carole Thuringer joined Red Wing Software’s support team 16 years ago. Carole has been an asset to Red Wing Software in a variety of ways over the years. After several years of working on the support team, she managed a network of reselling partners. She then went on to start and develop the ‘How2’ documentation system and videos, and then also created and launched Red Wing Software University (RWSU) which customers still use every single day. Most recently, Carole has taken on the role of Staff Accountant, though she continues to work on the RWSU, the testing of new products, and helping with migration processes.

Carole has a 13-year-old daughter named Zoe, who is a straight A student, excels in track, and loves to participate in plays. Carole also just celebrated her fourth wedding anniversary with her husband John. In their spare time, the three of them enjoy family activities. Carole says, “The three of us love trail riding with our ATVs and our Arabian horses. We used to compete at horse shows almost every weekend each summer, but have switched gears in the past couple of years to Competitive Mounted Orienteering. Never heard of it? Think of a timed scavenger hunt through the woods on horseback using an old-fashioned map reading compass! This year, we are also expanding our horizons and will be competing in 25 and 50-mile endurance rides with our horses.”
