Carol Herndon and Paul Bennett started their exploration of relationship together in 2003, after a combined 50 years of marriage to other people. They soon connected with Sandy and Lon Golnick, and began participating in their cutting-edge workshops. Carol and Paul joined the RelationshipByDesign team as a way to fulfill their vision that people everywhere live in deeply fulfilling relationships.
Carol was a business attorney for 35 years. She brought clarity to her clients’ business relationships, treating the contracts she wrote as the foundation for integrity and satisfaction. Paul writes for nonprofit organizations committed to the environment, women’s issues, education and health care.
Paul and Carol live in Bethesda, Maryland. They have raised four children between them, and enjoy their only grandchild enormously.
