Born and raised in Minnesota, Carly has always had a passion for travel. In college she studied abroad at Southern Cross University in Australia. While there, she demonstrated sensitivity to cultural values and differences, developed a global perspective, and learned how to adapt quickly, flexibility and gained independence. Following her study abroad experience, the travel bug bit her, leading to travels to Bali, Japan, and backpacking around Europe.

As a recent college graduate, Carly is ready to jumpstart her career in the Travel and Hospitality Industry, and also as the Social Media Guru for Young Travel Professionals San Francisco. On her spare time, Carly loves being outdoors, finding new hikes to check out, enjoying a nice glass of wine, and scoping out all the hidden gems each city and culture has to offer. Showcasing it via photography, videography, and across all social media platforms. You can come stow away on her getaways at her travel blog CarryOnCarly.com.  

Favorite Travel Destination: Ireland, because the scenery is so green and luscious, and the local pubs are a ton of fun!
