While originally from the Milwaukee area, Carly resides with her husband, daughter and family dog in Appleton. She has a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh. Carly fell in love with the Fox Valley area while attending college and somehow convinced her southern-born husband it's pretty cool, too. She currently works full-time in marketing for a non-profit and will soon take on a dream part-time position that not only will advance her career but give her time to pursue other interests and focus on her family. In her free time, Carly likes to travel, read and write and can almost always be found outdoors, weather permitting.
