Carly is a Charlotte native who works as a Public Relations Manager, leading strategic
Corporate Communications efforts across health care specialty areas. In her role, she
combines her love of strategic storytelling with the chance to share life-changing stories
with general and medical media. She finds innovative ways to pitch and write multimedia stories, coordinates media opportunities, plans social media content and more.

  
Three years in a row, the Charlotte chapter of the Public Relations Society of America has recognized Carly's brand journalism campaigns, awarding her with Queen City Public Relations Crown Awards for national public relations digital and social media campaigns. 

Her career started in television news, where she moved across state lines as a producer, anchor and reporter. Carly wrote, shot and edited television news pieces that have appeared in local markets and nationally in New York City. Of all the stories she’s worked on, those that remain closest to her heart involve people defying the odds.
