Carrie grew up on a college campus, Alderson Broaddus University, and left home as an adult with three degrees. She thought she would be a teacher but fell in love with Anatomy and Physiology, which started her journey as a physician assistant. After working in women’s health and family medicine, she specialized in geriatrics and internal medicine because she thinks older people have so much to contribute.
While raising kids, Carrie was very active with her kids in the Rockwood School District, at SLUH and at Washington University in St. Louis. Today, when she isn’t working with inspiring clients who need help at home, she loves to cycle, bake homemade cinnamon rolls and apple pie, and travel with her husband to visit their adult sons on the East Coast.
