Carleen Meckenstock


Irish Wolfhound Association of the Mid South


I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area. Upon graduating from high school I worked for over eight years in association management as a client accountant. I continued to work in the accounting field for the next ten years. In 2000 I married Klaus J. Meckenstock and became an Army wife. I continued to progress in my career, becoming a Family Readiness Support Activate for the US Army. I spent my time ensuring Army families had the tools to sustain a household while their soldier was deployed. I continue to work for the Department Of Defense as a budget analyst. Klaus and I have two sons, Cody 26 and Hunter 22. Hunter is serving in the US Army at Fort Bliss TX. We had two Irish Wolfhounds, Phoenix and Shane, but recently lost Phoenix. We also have a Beagle, Cosmo, and a Dachshund, Habanero. We love spending our time camping with the dogs, and I enjoy bowling, sewing and swimming.
