Event director Carrie Miller
From Paul our CEO:
"Carrie and I met when I was on the Donny Osmond tour back in the early 2000s. She was in line to get popcorn at Garretts and I was there with my family as well. We struck up a conversation, she came to the show, and we were instant friends. We've been working on and off ever since, but recently I've brought her on board to become my Event Director. Her expertise in event planning goes back over 20 years, and I'm lucky to have someone I trust working with me."
Originally from the Chicago area, Carrie now calls Minnesota her home.
Her love for music and the non-profit world led her to Minneapolis, where she worked for Fraser Schools and Jewish Housing and Programs to name a few. She sits on the board of her local Southdale YMCA and has helped them organize their fundraising events for the past 2 years.
She loves music and has helped countless Minnesota musicians with their concerts, CD release parties, and social media campaigns.
