Carrie lives in a coastal town in north Florida where she enjoys the unhurried rhythm and swims in the deep conversations of life. A lover of words and freedom, her writing reflects an openness to the unknown and the unexpected. Drawing from the essence of her own experiences, she furthers global awareness by connecting her story to the universal story, using childbirth in particular as a metaphor for what wants to emerge in the world. While travel is always calling, she focuses on who she is becoming rather than where she will be going next. A former elementary school teacher, Carrie also has a fierce passion for preserving childhood as a magical stage of unfolding and is the co-author of A Child’s Way: Slowing Down for Goodness Sake.
