Carrie currently works as a Research Associate II at the Center of Excellence for Children’s Behavioral Health at the Georgia Health Policy Center. Her work with the Georgia Recovery-Oriented Cognitive Therapy (CT-R) Initiative supports behavioral health providers throughout the state to address the needs of individuals with severe mental illness. Prior to this role, Carrie served as a Health Promotion Specialist, supporting wellness efforts for state employees throughout Georgia, and as a Special Projects Coordinator, developing intensive programming for students in South Georgia who were interested in health professional careers.
Carrie received her bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and master’s degree in public health from Emory University, with a focus in Health Education and the Socio-Contextual Determinants of Health.
Her areas of interest and expertise include health education, public/private partnerships, evaluation, training development, and program planning. She hopes to use her DrPH training to further strengthen her skillset to evaluate and leverage partnerships (nonprofit, private, state-level, and academic) to create solutions that address health equities, especially those impacting minority communities.
