Overview

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. She also oversees the firm’s pro bono program, which benefits communities while exposing timekeepers to opportunities that allow them to refine their abilities.

Carrie serves as liaison to the firm’s Executive Board and other internal committees to ensure Husch Blackwell considers important factors beyond talent when hiring and advancing employees.

She also leads the firm’s Ombuds program, which encourages a culture of respect, and the NextGen Committee, which promotes an open dialogue between attorneys with 10 or fewer years of experience and executive management.

In 2019 Carrie became a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach. Carrie encourages all firm attorneys and staff to utilize strengths-based coaching as an opportunity to appreciate how the individual strengths profile influences behaviors, productivity and engagement.
