Carlie has 10 years of experience in working with nonprofits. She earned her Bachelors and Masters in Public Administration from Texas A&M (avid Aggie fan!) and has resided in DFW since 2009 with her husband Brian. Carlie began working with SPCA in 2010 and has served on the Strut Your Mutt Planning Committee for the previous 10 years. When she is not working, she spends time with her husband and German shepherd mix, Roxie, who is an SPCA shelter alum. Carlie enjoys traveling, especially to watch A&M football. Carlie and Brian also enjoy fostering.
Carlie’s goal is to continue to grow YP’s membership and empower members to be SPCA ambassadors. She intends to use marquee events, such as Strutt Your Mutt and the Tower Club Networking Event, to find innovative ways to fundraise within the YP network/demographic. Carlie also wants to bring more shelter events to members and raise brand awareness. To achieve key objectives, Carlie believes there are opportunities within DEI and member engagement.
