She was born November 18, 1966 to her parents Miguel Thomas Mejia and Betty Lee Burnett in Los Angeles, CA. She graduated class of 1984 from Arroyo High School in El Monte, and went on to earn a degree in Administrative Work. She began working at Industry Hills Expo Center in 1991, where she would become manager and operator. There she met her husband David and they were married on Valentine's Day of 1998. Raising two boys, Manuel and Michael she became very involved in all of their activities and schooling. Carol loved music and dancing, and being a former band kid herself, devoted much time and many weekends to the Bishop Amat Band program while son Manuel was a member.

She pulled out all the stops for holidays and birthdays making everyone of them unique and fun. Her captivating smile and interesting conversations made everyone feel welcomed and loved. She took great joy in making all of her family feel special and made her friends like family.
