Carrie recently became a Peer Wellness Coach for Cherokee Health Systems in Knoxville, TN in January, 2019. She graduated from The University of Tennessee with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education and completed her national exam for certification in therapeutic recreation in 2013. She went on to work as a Recreational Therapist in a residential psychiatric facility for several years. She has spent time also working as a case manager for Sevierville’s indigent population, and was the activities director at an assisted living facility, before welcoming her first baby girl in September of last year. Her role as a Peer Wellness Coach is humbling and meaningful, as she has lived with OCD and ADHD and has been in recovery for most of her adult life. She finds nothing but passion in empowering and educating those on their own journey of recovery and wellness to live their healthiest and most positive life. Her favorite things to do include kayaking, gardening, spending time with her new family, traveling and Tennessee Football-Go Vols!
