A LITTLE BIT ABOUT CARRIE

I grew up in Livonia and went to Hayes, Riley and Churchill. My husband Daniel and I met while working at the Livonia Civic Center Library. We have two young boys who also attend Livonia Public Schools.  

I love helping people and problem-solving, and my work experience has allowed me to do both. I'm passionate about Livonia and proud to have served on the Livonia Historical Commission (2019 - 2020) and as Board Chair for the Livonia Library Commission (2020 - 2023). I've also served on the board of the Livonia Jaycees and the Livonia Democratic Club. 

In 2021, I founded Vote. Run. Serve, a volunteer-led, non-partisan educational platform designed to help Livonia residents connect with municipal government and community events. It's a team effort that I continue to engage in. 

In 2023, I helped Councilwoman Laura Toy launch the Livonia Women's Connection. The free event series is designed to allow civic, business and community leaders to network and find pathways to do great things in our community.
