Carrie began her legal career in 2004 as an Assistant State Attorney for the 18th Judicial Circuit, serving Seminole and Brevard counties. She started as a misdemeanor prosecutor in Titusville, Florida, and was later transferred to Sanford, Florida, where she was ultimately promoted to a felony docket trial attorney position.
