In 2009, she earned her Master of Business Administration from UT Austin while continuing to work full-time. Carrie has worked on both the technical side and the financial side of businesses. In 2013, she was named the Outstanding Young Engineering Graduate by the UT Cockrell School of Engineering.  Carrie has had an accomplished career in the energy industry.

In addition to her professional endeavors, Carrie is involved in multiple philanthropic causes. She actively serves on the Board of Directors for Recipe for Success and the UT Cockrell School of Engineering executive advisory board.

Beyond her technical talents and philanthropic pursuits, there is a creative spirit about Carrie. She is deeply passionate about fashion, travel, and living well. Though she has no formal training or education in fashion, Carrie has a refined eye and a sophisticated style. She enjoys discovering new designers and spotting emerging trends.

As for travel, she loves to explore and finds that travel brings so much joy to her life. In her words, “The more I travel, the more I want to travel! I learn so much about myself and the world around me when I travel.”

Thank you for stopping by and joining in as we explore what to wear, where to go, and how to live well.


The more I travel, the more I want to travel! I learn so much about myself and the world around me when I travel.
