Carrie attended Ben-Hill Irwin Technology School, and received a diploma in Telecommunications in 1996. She worked in this field for about 4 years around the Warner Robins/Macon area before deciding to pursue a career with more people interaction.
Carrie sought employment with Dr. Lina Harper’s, M.D., office, which gave her a sense of fulfillment. The most important part about working with patients to her, is always making them feel like family and not a chart number. “Kindness, humility, and compassion go a long way, in this world, and it is completely !!!” says Carrie.
After 5 ½ years, Carrie left Dr. Harper’s office to help care for her father in his last years. She feels blessed to have shared that time with him.
