She also taught English at Neijiang University, Sichuan Province, China in the Peace Corps for 1 ½ years.
Carlie is proud of working for an organization that isn’t encumbered by “how things are usually done” or “the norm”. Yet, eQuality’s devotion to serving each Associate as an individual has never wavered. "I’m reminded of this everyday by our distinctive community-based structure and our endeavors into unique programs such as eQuality Farms and the eQ eXplorers."
Carlie lives with her life-partner Scott, yellow lab - Spike, and two kitties Flip & Whitey. She is a diehard Vikings fan and loves curling, hiking, swimming, walking her dog, roller-blading, and playing sports.
