Carrie is a freelance writer, editor, illustrator, and painter to whom communication is very important. She became aware of Scientology as a philosophy when working as a fulltime educator at a men's correction and rehabilitation center. As a GED and life-skills instructor, she quickly discovered how to tailor information to individual students, and Student Hat was incredibly beneficial, if not essential to this process. Since then, she has written curriculum for several classes anda few academic books on self-improvement. Helping others on their path on the bridge helps her with her own, making it an almost symbiotic relationship. In fact, she considers herself to be a life-long learner, as well as an instructor.
