Growing up on a farm in Green Forest, Arkansas, and watching her parents’ dedication to their jobs taught Carrie that there is a lot of hard work and sacrifice that goes into succeeding at life. Her dad ran the farm while her mom worked in banking, which also inspired her to enter the world of finance.
In 2000, Carrie graduated from the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor's Degree in Finance with an emphasis in Financial Management. She worked in banking in Northwest Arkansas and Kansas City from 1998 to 2008 before becoming a full-time stay-at-home mom/referee of two boys. Since then, the customer service aspect of banking has stuck with her and imparted the ability to work with different types of people and personalities. Being married to a designer has rooted her into the architectural realm for many years, so it only made sense that in 2017 she joined the team at modus studio. As Controller, Carrie helps guide this collective of designers in financial decisions by creating and maintaining accounting operations, records, and budgets. She believes that the best part about being at modus is the relaxed studio environment where everyone works hard but still has fun.
In her free time, she enjoys cooking, traveling, and hanging out with her husband Josh, and her sons Collin and Carter. Some of her favorite moments have been their epic family road trips to the east and west coasts. Carrie loves NFL football and is an avid Kansas City Chiefs fan living in a Denver Broncos household.
