Carol L. Sparks
As a graduate of Truman State University and Saint Louis University School of Law, Carol became licensed in both IL and MO and started her legal career practicing in the area of business law in a local law firm. She assisted business clients in all areas of purchase and sale transactions, from due diligence to negotiation. In addition, Carol advised her business clients in matters of business formation and all types of contracts. As the daughter of local business owners, Carol knew that the decisions her business clients were making each day affected more than the company's bottomline, often those decisions transcend to a parent's ability to provide for his or her family.
When her parents decided to sell the family business, she agreed to assist in the project. Within one year of joining the company, Carol conducted a private auction and helped the company sell its business assets and operations. Carol was asked to remain with the buyer to assist them following the purchase. In recent years, Carol's family has increased, and she has been giving the opportunity to spend time with her two daughters. She continues to find great pleasure in assisting business clients on a part-time basis.
In her spare time Carol has co-founded Interwoven Souls Coalition, a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising money for medical research relating to complications of multiples birth and pregnancy.
