Carolyn came from a family of business entrepreneurs. Her grandfather was a physician who, because of Jim Crow laws, was unable to use the local hospital, so he built his own hospital and with her grandmother, started a nursing school to train Black nurses. Her mother also was a business owner of multiple businesses.

When she went into medicine, she founded three women’s centers in San Diego offering general medicine and office gynecology for women. Dr. Ross was named “San Diego’s Business Woman of the Year”.

She later went on to do consulting work at eating disorder treatment facilities where she then founded “The Anchor Program”. This included developing a line of supplements that were used in her consulting work and in the Anchor Program.
