Carrie has worked for mission driven organizations for almost 30 years with a passionate focus on environmental and climate change areas. She brings this experience to Quivira Coalition where she oversees operations and systems that support Quivira staff in their work, brings thought leadership at an organizational level and works closely with the Executive Director.

Her formative years began on an 80 acre family farm that used organic practices in the western mountains of Maine and later moved to the coast of Maine. Her connection to the earth continued to grow as she did. After receiving a degree in psychology, she worked overseas and on the ocean where she began to see the connection between culture and the environment. She explored this more deeply through graduate studies in physical oceanography and marine policy where her research explored the effect of climate change through science, social and communication perspectives. Before joining Quivira Coalition, Carrie worked as the Operations and Finance Director for Acadia Center, a non-profit organization working towards a clean energy future, for almost 9 years. 

Carrie is inspired in life and in work by the sacredness of the earth and our relationship with her. The joy and laughter in Carrie’s life comes from being in nature, fiber arts, gardening, music and her friends and family. She is excited to fulfill her long term dream of living in New Mexico.
