Comment from article creator - Hello, the article has been improved substantially since then with more references. To help demonstrate notability, I wanted to provide the three best secondary, independent sources which I feel demonstrate significant coverage of this person. [1] [2] [3] (You can only see a preview of one page in the book, but there are three pages dedicated to talking solely about Carolyn Ryan). There is also quite a bit of significant discussion in the other sources, but I thought I'd boil it down to three of the best to help make it easier for the reviewer to determine notability.
