Hometown: Washington, DC

Carrie brings a background in management, Human Resources, event planning, and customer service to her role as the Human Resources & Operations Associate (HROA) with Elevate. As the HROA, Carrie is responsible for all aspects of Personnel – including hiring, performance, compensation and benefits. She also coordinates the Elevate Internship Program.

Prior to joining Elevate Carrie’s, connection to nonprofits was through volunteering for and serving on nonprofit boards. Carrie holds a BA in Economics from George Mason University and a Certificate in Human Resources Management from Northern Virginia Community College. She plans to take the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) certification exam later this year.

Carrie is a mom to two awesome kids and her dog, Henry Staubach Bradshaw Polamalu Ward Tomlinson Bettis. In addition to being an obvious longtime fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, she also loves the Washington Wizards, the Nationals, the Miami Heat, and is a new fan of DC United!

When time allows she can be found working out at the gym or catching up on game highlights on ESPN. She enjoys music, reading, traveling, brunching with friends, visiting family, and cultivating her knowledge of food and wines. As a native Washingtonian, Carrie loves sharing all that the DC area has to offer in the world of food, music, and the arts.

What is your hidden talent?

Eating an entire bag of Kettle flavored Pop Corners chips while watching a good movie. I also give an awesome manicure, pedicure, and massage.

What is your grammatical pet peeve?

Every error is a pet peeve for me—my mother was an English major and an English instructor. My classmates would call me a know-it-all. I try not to be annoying when it comes to corrections anymore.

What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?

I enjoy spending my Sundays watching sports, listening to music, reading, relaxing on my patio, or brunching with friends.
