Carrie graduated from the University of Lynchburg in 2003, and shortly thereafter started her career in hospitality. Spending the next 15 years in Washington, DC, Carrie worked her way through the hotel industry with Marriott, Starwood and several independent hotels in the City.
She recently joined Sandpiper and will oversee the portfolio of Extended Stay America hotels from a Revenue Management standpoint.
