|Personal History||Born in Montecito, California to Richard and Ann in the year of our lord, 2341. Charlotte grew up on the family ranch, with her mother, while her father was serving in Starfleet. Her mother was a Civilian Doctor and would frequently bring Charlotte to the office with her. It was during these formative years that Charlottle decided she too wanted to work in the medical field.
At age 17, Charlotte began her Pre-Med studies at the University of California, before transferring her studies to Starfleet Academy, to her this was a way to honour both of her parents.
Her years at the Academy were most rewarding. She made many connections, that have helped her in situations throughout her career. Despite the work load being heavy, Charlotte loved the lessons in her Medical Studies. Charlotte excelled in her studies, and recieved commendations from most of her instructors.
Just as she was coming up on her graduation from the Academy, she received word that her father was killed in the line of duty. Charlotte raced home to be by her mother's side. Two months later, her mother also passed away.
Following the death of her parents, and her graduation from Starfleet Academy, with commission to the rank of Ensign, Charlotte was assigned to the USS Demeter for her medical residency. It was here that she decided to Major in Neurology, with a Minor in Psychiatry. She completed Three years aboard the Demeter before being promoted to the rank of Lieutenant as she had been promoted to Lieutenant JG two years earlier.
With her promotion, Charlotte accepted a transfer to the USS Hypatia, where she would serve as Assistant Chief Medical Officer. After several years aboard Hypatia, Charlotte, who was affectionately known as Dr. Charlie, became pregnant with her daughter which she named Caroline. During her pregnancy and for the first few years on her daughter's life Charlotte's career did not miss a beat.
Following her tenure aboard Hypatia, Charlotte was drafted in to Covert work with Starfleet intelligence. It is because of this work that she earned a promotion to Lt Commander before transferring back into active serve aboard Starbase 13.
Starbase 13 was definitely a departure from what both Charlotte and her daughter were used to, but it offered a stability they needed in the child's formative years. While assigned to the starbase, however. Charlotte was still going out into the field often and so she was also assigned to the USS Carpathia. Charlotte found that she enjoyed serving on both stations and ships. Carpathia offered Charlotte the opportunity to work on her first Romulan, as the ship responded in relief to the Supernova of Hobus.
Before long, an opportunity arose to serve on the McCoy Medical Station. Something Charlotte could not refuse. She was given the position of Deputy Director of Medical Services. While aboard she soon realized why the posting was available. The station was antiquated and falling apart.
It was about this time that Caroline decided she wished to join Starfleet and she went off to the academy to start her own career. Charlotte wished her daughter well before the two said goodbye.
Charlotte soon requested a transfer out and, at the recommendation of one of her former instructors, she was assigned to Starbase 24 as one of their senior medical officers. This happened right about the time that McCoy Medical Station was finally decommissioned and scrapped while its replacement was a state of the art facility that had been established next to the old base.
