Born and raised in Long Island, Carrie attended Hofstra University as a business major. In 2000, she and her husband attended an Open House at the Waldorf School. She recounts: "We thought the kindergarten classroom was so beautiful and we just fell in love with the school. It was like our second-home!" Since then, Carrie has been an active Waldorf parent and in recent years has assisted in the parent-child program and the nursery afternoon care program. An avid knitter, sewer, and biodynamic gardener, Carrie is a graduate of the Winkler Center's Foundation Studies Program.
