Director of STEM & Workforce Development and Education

Carrie joined the Center for Forensic Science Research & Education team as Director of Operations after spending more than twenty years in the non-profit field. Always loving science and nature, Carrie started working directly out of college as a seasonal park Ranger traveling between the Everglades, Hawaii, Redwoods, and Assateague Island. She then took education positions for both the National Aquarium in Baltimore and the Philadelphia Zoo managing the public and school-based programming with a focus on conservation driven by scientific data.

Over the past twelve years, she held the titles of Director of Communications for Audubon Pennsylvania and Center Manager for the John James Audubon Center, which cemented her passion in non-profit organizational growth and development.
During her tenure with Audubon, she established an award-winning STEM program focused on native gardens in schoolyards and community centers in Norristown, PA. The National Audubon Society featured the program in their quarterly magazine which allowed it to be replicated across the country. Carrie also wrote the prologue for “Audubon Birdhouse Book, Revised and Updated: Building, Placing, and Maintaining Great Homes for Great Birds” and was a reoccurring contributing author for Audubon Adventures.

In her free time, she coordinates the community gardens at her residential complex and teaches nature-based craft classes with her son, Parker.
