I first met Carly when I began working with her at a small consulting firm in the fall of 2009. Shortly thereafter I learned about the great work she did supporting/leading a local advocacy group for Chrohn's Disease. Two years ago, she inspired me to sign up for my first charity walk to support research for this and other related illnesses. This illness is not well known, nor is it glamorous, but Carly tirelessly works to educate and raise awareness and funding to combat the illness, that she herself suffers from. I'm amazed at all that she is able to do on a daily basis! — Heather
