Carrie has been co-hosting Network Ten’s The Project since 2009. During this time, she has travelled the world reporting on stories including the 10th anniversary of 9/11 in New York, and interviewed celebrities such as Brad Pitt, Will Ferrell and Sarah Jessica Parker.
Before her work on The Project, Carrie was on Australian television variety show Rove Live for four years and a member of the top rating breakfast radio team with Nova FM. Carrie received a TV Week Logie Award for Best New Talent in May 2010 and in 2015 received the Silver Logie for Best Presenter and the Gold Logie for Best Personality on Australian TV.
Carrie used her acceptance speech as an opportunity to raise public awareness for brain cancer, in honour of her late husband, by wearing a beanie which sparked a massive awareness movement for brain cancer in Australia.
Carrie believes in giving back to the community and donates her time to many charity events and causes. She is the Australian ambassador for UNICEF (neo-natal tetanus program), and has also set up her own charity, Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer which to date has raised over 1 million dollars through community fundraising events, the sale of beanies and the BrainBeats concert.
Proud mother to her wonderful son Ollie and beautiful baby girl Evie, Carrie is a role model for women aspiring to juggle the demands of a successful professional career with motherhood. When not working, she loves nothing more than getting active in a dance class, pilates session or just hanging out in the park with her kids.
