Jamboree 2016 Speaker Spotlight: Cari A. Taplin, CG®

Cari A. Taplin, CG®, is related to Roy Rogers. Or at least, the stories her grandparents told her as a child said so. As a result, she has been working on finding her true heritage since the year 2000. She is a native of Wood County, Ohio but migrated to Wyoming, Colorado and now Pflugerville, Texas, which is just outside of Austin. Cari has served on a wide variety of volunteer positions for local and state societies over the years. She also serves as mom to two/too cute kids.
