Who is Carrie?

Creatrix. Birth maven. Mentor.

My life’s work is to heal the world and manifest peace by changing the nature of how we do things – from how we eat, to how we birth, to how we live and work. I have lived as a mother, grandmother, educator, urban farmer, business owner, musician, artist, project manager, race director, mentor, and friend.

My primary role right now is a writer, consultant, and mentor. My intention is to facilitate self-discovery in others, and to raise awareness of the many ways of being human. Whether I'm helping you write a website, book, or script; helping you launch a business or become a doula; I bring in my decades of learning — from prenatal consciousness to human development and psychology, from anti-racism and social jusctice activism, to the abundance of health that is offered by our planet.

I derive my greatest joy witnessing the transformation a person goes through when they are following their heart's calling. I am honored to be able to work with people at this incredible time in history, to do what I love, and call it my ‘work’.

I love reading, learning from children, gardening, dancing, sewing, hanging out with trees, being in water, silence, and sunshine.
