Hi, I'm Carrie

I got my wake-up call at 31 years old when I survived a heart attack.

At the time, I was working in a stressful Human Resources job that didn't inspire me, and even though I was in good physical shape as a triathlete, I felt disconnected from myself. I was stressed out, and unsure of what I really wanted in life.​

I was caught up in the common belief in our society that the measure of your life is how busy you are, and how accomplished you are in your career. 

My near-death experience opened my eyes to the fact that I needed to change. I wanted my life to be full of passion, adventure, love, and laughter. 

After learning more about heart disease - the #1 killer of all Americans and 80% preventable with lifestyle changes - I decided something needed to change.

Too many people die from heart disease, and I believe we can change that! I wanted to help others get off the hamster wheel, and lead healthier and happier lives.

I embarked on a long journey that included education in nutrition and life-coaching methods to become a holistic health practitioner, cleaning up my diet, and training to become a yoga teacher. As an inflexible athlete, I never thought yoga would be "my thing," but much to my surprise, it was exactly what I needed. I dove in head first and have continued my exploration of the world of yoga well beyond that initial teacher training.  

I dipped my toe in entrepreneurship while I was still working full time in HR. My path wasn't always easy, and I found myself slipping back into old habits time and again. I consider myself a recovering perfectionist.

But, along the way I picked up tools and resources that helped me connect to myself, find my way, and stay on track. In 2018, I took the plunge. I left my corporate job to focus full-time on operating Firefly so that I could reach more people, and stop splitting my energy between my passion and the ball-and-chain of the corporate world. ​

My wish for all of us is that we be connected to self, others, nature, and our food; that we ignite our souls, thrive in life, and shine brightly.​

Which brings me to you, and why I started Firefly Community!

I want you to have fun. To be healthy. To feel fulfilled in all areas of your life. To be passionate about your work AND play. To have loads of energy, a strong heart, clear mind, and unmistakable glow.  ​

"Carrie helped me to determine what areas of my life I wanted to change or modify. She organized and outlined steps to realistically make progress on my goals in the areas of diet, exercise, goal-setting, and reflection. She listened to my dilemmas and challenges with understanding and gave encouraging advice. She helped guide and direct me in self-discovery and in tracking progress. She gave me concrete tools to help achieve my short term goals and made me think of bigger picture of how I want my life to look in the future. She really supported me though a very difficult time in my life. She provided me with some great recipes, yoga sequences, journaling tools, and self-evaluation worksheets to help me in the future as well. I have really enjoyed working with Carrie as she is a caring and insightful person with unique wisdom from her own experiences."

"I have had the benefit of attending yoga classes taught by Carrie at two companies over the past several years. Her patience and skill in leading these classes is quite amazing. She always sets a very relaxed mood using her fun, but peaceful personality, appropriate music, and readings on yoga and meditation. She is very attentive to individual students, being mindful of their limitations and needs for alternative or adjusted poses and props. Her Yin classes especially have helped me tremendously with back issues and muscle soreness from surgeries, exercise, and sitting at a keyboard for 8-10 hours a day. She has a very deep knowledge of yoga and its affect on the body."
