Carrie earned a diploma in Teleproduction Technology from York Technical College and a Bachelor's degree in Media Arts from the University of South Carolina-Columbia. She has extensive administrative experience with the United States Tennis Association, the Nickelodeon Theater of the Columbia Film Society, and Young Audiences of New York. What brought you to CERRA? I wanted to work for an organization where you can see and feel how passionate everyone involved is. In the past, I worked at the Nickelodeon Theatre and there I was surrounded by people who were passionate about bringing independent and foreign films to Columbia, SC. At Young Audiences New York I was surrounded by people who thought it was incredibly important to bring teaching artists and performance artists into New York City schools to share their art with students. And here at CERRA, I'm surrounded by people who are passionate about recruiting teachers in South Carolina, retaining teachers in our state and giving them professional development opportunities for advancement in their teaching careers.
