Carrie’s compassion for animals and dedication to animal advocacy was apparent from day one. Her mother volunteered at their local SPCA and in addition to helping care for their own beloved rescues, she grew up learning about ways to help stray dogs, feral cats, and injured wildlife. Carrie even integrated her love of animals into her career, serving on the Marketing team at Animal Planet from 2002-2006. She has been a long-time admirer of PetConnect Rescue’s work and has both adopted from and volunteered with the organization over the years, joining the Board of Directors in October of 2018. Carrie lives in Potomac with her husband, Marc, their three beautiful human children, and their three sweet furry children.
