Outnumbered three to one by her husband and two sons, Carrie Eckert is the queen of her household in Florida. With a degree in Economics from Davidson College, a professional background in banking and sales, and a lifelong fondness for beautiful design, she is also an artist and business owner whose career has followed the path of her passions.
In 2012, Carrie found herself beset with mysterious fatigue and pain that interrupted her busy life. Though different doctors and therapists were able to address some symptoms, none could pinpoint the overall cause of her faltering health – or prescribe a solution that made her feel better. She felt too crummy to enjoy her family and friends. She was having a hard time working on her boutique paper line, littleday press. In fact, she was starting to feel downright dysfunctional.
Since that time, Carrie has been on a steady journey to improve her health – a journey that has included some right moves, a few wrong turns, and plenty of difficult questions. She has met and consulted with experts in everything from nutrition to the immune system, and what she has learned has led to some very positive lifestyle changes.
Beginning in 2014, Carrie is pursuing a Masters in Nutrition & Integrative Health. Going back to school might seem to be the ultimate juggling act, but it’s one that has great personal importance for Carrie, and she hopes to share what she learns to improve the lives and health of others.
