About this Speaker

Carrie is an innovative and strategic change agent who crafts order from chaos and solves problems for people and organizations. Over the last 20 years, first as an attorney and then as a higher education fundraiser and administrator, Carrie has created structures and processes for more efficient operations with a supreme attention to detail. She is a consummate connector who identifies links between individuals and institutions to advance not only the mission but revenue streams. Her ability to strategically set a direction, gauge progress with quantifiable metrics, and report outcomes in a precise fashion has made her a critical asset to presidents and CEOs. Carrie’s work has been published in professional association magazines, business journals, peer reviewed journals (print and online), and she has presented at numerous regional, national, and international conferences. The Allegheny County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division named her the Outstanding Lawyer of the Year in 2003, and she was selected as a “40 Under 40” award winner twice: in Pittsburgh, PA in 2004 and in Philadelphia, PA in 2014.
