Originally from Greeneville, Carey has lived in Johnson City for 8 years. She is a graduate of ETSU and a part time dental technician. She has two precious children, Ava and Harper. Carey has been running since she was a child and has a huge passion for it (she says she is a bit of a running nerd). Running has helped her tremendously with anxiety, #runningchangeseverything! She also enjoys working out, listening to music, being outside and enjoying time with her family and friends. She is also a world champion wrestler! Carey is a ball of fun... but don't let her lead the way on a trail run.. You're bound to end up somewhere unplanned.
