Now a proud Vancouver Islander, Carly used to call the prairies home, growing up in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. While there, she graduated from the University of Calgary earning a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the Haskayne School of Business as well as a Bachelor of Arts – Economics degree. In both of these areas, she specialized in Strategic Management, Operations and Marketing. She is a lifelong learner and enjoys engaging in ongoing professional development.

Throughout both her education and career, Carly has established herself as a business leader and community activist in a variety of roles including time spent in Human Resources, Staff Development, Accounting, College Instruction, Non-Profit Communications and Event Planning, and numerous roles in Branding, Marketing and Management. These experiences have provided her with the skills and knowledge she currently uses in growing her own local Ready-Mix and Mining business.

Giving back to the community that has given her so much is very important to Carly. She is the current Vice President of the Young Professionals of Campbell River (YPCR) as well as the current Vice Chair of Community Futures Strathcona. She also sat on the Volunteer Campbell River Board of Directors and the Ducks Unlimited Committee. As a business owner, it is also a privilege for her to sponsor and donate to a variety of causes including the Campbell River Hospital Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, the Campbell River Cricket Club and many local athletes.

At the heart of it all, Carly’s greatest adventure and largest passion is her family. She is grateful to have three children who love the community as much as she does and a supportive husband to share the journey with.
