ABOUT CARLY

Born and raised in East Cleveland, Ohio, Carly fell in love with the nonprofit sector as an undergraduate freshman. Inspired by her challenging experience as she transitioned from high school to college, she sought to support younger students who would face similar situations as they began matriculation. That journey led her to passionately lead, study, and support nonprofit organizations for the past ten years. In all areas of her career, she has been notorious for influencing optimal levels of success and impact through transformational leadership. 

Carly served in various roles at a federally qualified health center, Care Alliance Health Center, in Cleveland, Ohio, where she led the organization’s community engagement efforts, development, external affairs, and marketing. Carly also had the pleasure of serving as the fourth Executive Director of Trinity Community Center in the Hollygrove neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana. Most recently, she served as the Director of Development at Propeller: A Force for Social Innovation in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Health Education from Howard University with a concentration in Maternal and Child Health. She also earned her Master of Education degree from Cleveland State University with a concentration in Community Health Promotion and her Master of Nonprofit Organizations degree from Case Western Reserve University. Carly is pursuing her Doctor of Education degree in Learning and Organizational Change from Baylor University. 

Carly is an active community servant. She is passionate about causes that are relevant to youth and families. For example, Carly served as the Recording Secretary and Membership Chair of the Cleveland Council of Black Colleges Alumni Association for five years. She also served as one of the inaugural members of the College Now Greater Cleveland Emerging Leaders Association. In New Orleans, she helped to form the Greater New Orleans UNCF Inter-Alumni Council, works with the Urban League of Louisiana Young Professionals, and serves on the Community Advisory Board for the Center for Minority Health & Disparities Research and Education at Xavier University. As a life member of the National Council of Negro Women, Incorporated (NCNW), Carly has served in several leadership roles within the organization.
