Carly has been the Project Manager for The 84 since 2013 and has been working on tobacco issues since 2000 when she was in high school. Hailing from Springfield, Illinois, Carly has a strong devotion to all things Midwest, and loves getting back there to check on if the corn is knee-high by the 4th of July (that’s a thing). Her two favorite holidays are the Youth Power Summit and Kick Butts Day, and she loves working with The 84’s Statewide Leadership Team and the staff at the Boston office (and loves to prank them, especially). Carly’s other interests include dinner parties with friends, biking, yoga, speaking Italian, going to church, manifesting positive things, and eating plant-based whole foods.
