Carey would describe herself and her life with two words: growth and grace. Being a coach’s wife of nearly 13 years, adoptive mom to a wild-at-heart boy and captivating little girl, daughter, friend, and career woman is hard! But with the old saying in mind, “Rome wasn’t built in a day,” she uses each role and season of her life as an opportunity to grow and be used all while remembering that she isn’t perfect and mistakes are inevitable. Carey’s been an English teacher and a stay-at-home mom, but is now in uncharted territory as the development director for a private school. Some days she knocks it out of the park, and other days it’s a swing and a miss. In everything, from her family, friends, and job, she wants to be better today than she was yesterday but welcomes the grace to fail.
