Carrie seeks to help Husch Blackwell attorneys reach their full potential within an inclusive environment.

Carrie works with the firm’s professionals to develop their strengths and leadership skills so they may offer the best service to clients. She oversees Husch Blackwell University and other programs whose curriculums focus on the management, business development and professional skills attorneys need to move their careers and clients forward.
