I'm a giver. I always have been. If I see someone in need, the first thing I do, is put them before me. Now I know you're thinking either, "That's dangerous", or "Why", but I was born that way. I have always had a need to protect children, or just be there to nurture. I have volunteered in the Lunch Buddy program, Read across America, The Big Brother Big Sister Program, and I was also a C.A.S.A (Court Appointed Special Advocate). But even though I volunteered for those programs, I still felt like I needed to do more...
I was also born an entertainer. I have been a performing songwriter for most of my life. I love the stage. I needed to know all aspects of it. So I perform, I write, I mentor, and I am even a live sound engineer! I was the emcee for Charlie Daniels' New Year's Eve event, and I have even performed for troops from over 50 countries!
I never really thought about where I received such an amazing trait, until one night, in a bit of an emotional breakdown, I cried out "Show me the way!" "What can I do to continue entertaining and feel good about myself! I want to give more and feel worthy!" Now my fans, will totally disagree with me on the last bit, but that's how I felt. Out of nowhere, I heard a whisper in my ear, "Auctioneer, Carrie". At first I was like, who would even remotely say that to me? But then it dawned on me! Duh! My Grandfather! My Great Grandfather! They were both cattle auctioneers in the Great Plains and the Midwest. That had to have been where I even picked up the entertainment bug from! As you know, auctioneers also have to be great entertainers!
So here I am. I went to school at World Wide College of Auctioneering and became a member of NAA. I'm like a 5 year old watching youtube- totally sucked in until mom turns it off!
I look forward to getting to know you and help turn your event into a successful evening!
“I’ve worked with Carrie for several years and I am constantly impressed by her ability with every performance to bring in the audience and tell them her story. Whether her stories concern love, loss, humor, or anything else—she keeps the listener engaged. She is a genuine person that has a knack for entertaining through her experiences.”
