This election is so important to the City of Irvine, its families and our future.
Before her career in public service, Carrie excelled in academia, graduating with highest-honors and two degrees from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She then attended Harvard Law School, where she first answered the call to public service as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), helping abused children navigate the court system. It was this early experience working with society’s most vulnerable children that compelled Carrie to choose a career in public policy rather than in the courtroom.
