Carrie Maloney was born in Plainfield, New Jersey, but spent most of her formative years in the land of the Jolly Green Giant, LeSueur, Minnesota. During college, she worked summers as a translator for Mexican migrants.
She began her career at a PBS station in St. Paul, Minnesota (Twin Cities Public Television), producing for the national Emmy Award-winning science show, Newton’s Apple. At this same TV station, she also won a regional Emmy Award as a producer on a documentary.
She moved into corporate America as a creative director, writing and directing business theater shows for Fortune 500 companies. Today she’s back to following her heart, creating videos and writing for the non-profit, education, and health & wellness worlds.
Animal-oriented passions fill much of her free time. She volunteers for Can Do Canines, an organization that trains assistance dogs for people with disabilities. And she’s also the Marketing Manager for The Grey Muzzle Organization, working to improve the lives of homeless and at-risk senior dogs.
Carrie lives in Star Prairie, Wisconsin, with her husband, Mark Given, and two senior shelter dogs, Gracie and Rose.
