I help to ensure that we have the right people in the right position to best help our students.
What excites you most about working at Elevate K-12?
Meeting all the people that are like-minded and who truly have a passion for helping our students succeed.
What’s a “normal” day like for you at Elevate K-12?
I review candidate’s applications to find the best fit for a position. I then interview them to find out more about their background and to ensure they are passionate about helping students and will fit into the culture we have developed as a company.

Describe your best moment at Elevate K-12. Be specific!
I guess my best moment would be when I’m interviewing a candidate and I start getting “goosebumps” because the person has such a contagious personality. They are engaging and have a true passion for what they do and it truly comes across in the interview.
Tell us a little more about who you are–what do you like to do?
I really enjoy being in nature. It helps me to stay connected and present. I have 3 fur babies that are the center of my universe (2 Scottish Terriers & 1 Toy Poodle). They provide such unconditional love. I train and compete with 2 of them. One of my Scotties participates in agility and barn hunts. The other races in an event called the Fast Cat. My little poodle is training to be a pet therapy dog.
Thanks, Carrie H.!
