Administrative Coordinator/Communications Assistant: Bay Area native Carrie Sownie graduated with a degree in theater from UC Santa Cruz. She performed for two years afterwards as a clown for a circus. Carrie loves working with students and children and facilitated activities at UCSC for the artistic student community. She enjoys crafting, hiking and visiting her local farmer’s market. A lover of music, Carrie’s singing career extends only as far as whistling duets with her cockatiel Buster. Carrie is happy to support local artists and bring joy to our communities in need.
