Carolyn Doyle

Contributing writer and editor

Carolyn Doyle grew up with a father whose DIY projects included doubling the size of their house.

Climbing a roofing ladder at age 2 to “see what was going on up there,” her curiosity led her to Indiana University and a career as a newspaper writer and editor.

A professional recipe developer and tester, most of her DIY work now takes place in the kitchen, where she’s constructed cakes, shingled sweet potatoes and fabricated fettuccine.

The first provider I hired from the List was ...

Something I learned while researching a story for Angie's List ...

The worst service provider experience I've ever had was ...
a plumber who said we could run the water after he stopped work for the day. (Good thing I own two mops.) 
The best service provider I've found on the List was ...
our pet sitter, who filled their water and food dishes daily, but was never able to catch sight of our shy cats.
