Carrie joined Goodmark Nurseries as Sales Manager at the end of 2021. Carrie grew up on a vegetable farm in Ohio where she learned the art of customer service and sales very young. She was introduced to horticulture when her older sister started growing hanging baskets and annuals to extend the selling season at the family’s roadside vegetable markets and her passion was born. Carrie went on to earn her associate’s degree in Greenhouse Management from The Ohio State University-ATI and later earned her Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from East Carolina University. She moved to the Chicagoland area with her husband and two sons in 2014 and since has worked as a Sales rep for other area Nurseries. In her spare time, Carrie enjoys gardening, traveling, and spending time with her family.
