Our Stories: Meet Carlie

 

 

 

Full of energy, determination and pure will, 35-year-old Carlie lives life to its fullest after sustaining a brain injury as the result of a car accident when she was in the 11th grade. Through a long and complex recovery, today she lives in her own apartment with support from her care team, including CCC Care Manager Ron Sturm. Carlie participates in daily tasks including meal preparation, nutrition tracking and budgeting. She is very active, enjoys working on creative projects related to the interior design of her home, runs her own online business, has reached a goal of bicycling 10 miles a day at the gym, and volunteers at numerous non-profit organizations.

Carlie's current goals range from meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends to becoming more independent and feeling happier. She also plans to tell her story as an inspiration to others.

“Carlie has a strong vision for what she wants her future to look like, and with the amount of energy she brings into every situation, I have no doubt that she will succeed," says Ron.
