Originally from Cincinnati, Carrie grew up in a house full of rescue dogs and cats. After graduating from Colorado State University, she moved to Jackson with her first rescue dog, Keto. Carrie worked at the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole from 2002-2006, where she was Director of Special Projects and Events. Her primary focus was organizing Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charities. In 2006, Carrie became Executive Director of the Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club. In her nine years there, Carrie increased enrollment in Ski Club by 40%, increased annual scholarship awards by more than ten-fold, and led numerous capital and program expansion campaigns. Over the years, Carrie has adopted three AAC animals including Cobia, Ellie and Jake Kitty.
Since joining the AAC team in 2015 she has combined her passion for non-profit work with her deep belief in animal rescue, adoption, education, and spay/neuter. She and her team have expanded the AAC’s reach both regionally and nationally with programs serving over 2,000 animals annually. In addition to her work at the AAC, Carrie currently serves as Wyoming’s representative for the United Spay Alliance.
