My name is Carrie. I am a former school teacher and an artist who loves to make pottery. I live with my daughter who is fifteen, my husband, and our dog. I also have had the good fortune to inherit property that provides a rental income for our family. I would like to give others some of the same opportunity that I have had, the chance to use their creativity in constructive ways, to make a good life for themselves and others. I particularly like to support women entrepreneurs since, in so many parts of the world, women still do not have the same economic advantages as men.
