Carrie Collier

Carrie comes to us after spending many years in higher education, where she worked in the areas of career development, counseling, student affairs, and business. Most recently at the University of Missouri she coordinated career and strengths development for students, faculty, and staff at the MU Career Center and helped launch a new hybrid online/on-campus execMBA program in the Trulaske College of Business.

Carrie was the first in her family to receive an undergraduate degree (University of Illinois) and she also holds an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Mizzou.  She is married to Brian Collier and they live in Columbia with their two children, Eliza and Emmet, and their very spoiled cat, Gussy.
