A native of Sandpoint, Idaho and a graduate of the University of Montana, Carly is thrilled to see Montana Children’s open as the first pediatric facility of its kind in the region. “I firmly believe that no matter what their injury or illness, kids should be able to be kids,” she says. “Having this facility with the caliber of healthcare and specialists that we have in Montana, is something that will make that possible.”
Carly enjoys traveling, skiing, and country music. She is extremely excited about the opportunity to return to Montana and is eager to use her skills to benefit pediatric healthcare in the area.
