Carrie is relatively new to the RVSPCA team, starting out as a Animal Care Technician in September 2022 and has recently moved into the Intake, Foster and Enrichment Coordinator role. In this role, Carrie coordinates all aspects of the intake and foster process for both cats and dogs, as well as planning and implementing enrichment activities for the animals in the shelter.
Carrie has Bachelor’s Degrees in Music and Art Education, but is in the process of pursuing certifications in canine behavior and training. And before joining the Roanoke Valley SPCA, she worked for 4 years as a high school art and yearbook teacher at Craig County Public Schools.
Carrie shares her home with a sweet, but jealous, 9 year old border collie/pitbull mix named Kimchi and a 13 year old jerk of a cat named Anansi. Because of this, she is not allowed to bring any more pets home from work!
Growing up Carrie was surrounded by animals of all types and they have always held a special place in her heart. After numerous different career paths she realized that she could combine her love of animals with work and as a result she enjoys coming into work everyday for doggie kisses and kitty snuggles.
