Hi there! I’m Carly. I grew up outside of Milwaukee, attended the University of Wisconsin – Madison (#OnWisconsin) and found my way back to the Milwaukee-area after graduation. You could say I’m a Wisconsin girl through and through.
I Irish danced for about 20 years and was fortunate to begin traveling the world at a young age for competitions and performances. St. Patrick’s Day will always be one of my favorite holidays.
I majored in Elementary Education but along the way became increasingly interested in public relations and social media. To keep my career journey short and sweet, I’ve taught, I’ve Irish danced, I’ve taught Irish dance and now work in advertising.
Just over a year ago, I married my best friend after dating for about seven years. Bill and I met while attending school in Madison. We quickly realized that our parents only lived less than five minutes away from each other. One of my favorite lines from my dad’s speech at our wedding was, “You’ve traveled around the world, but you found your love two miles from home.”
Why Fifth & Rose?
My family is extremely important to me, and I wanted to find a way to make the site extra personal. The Fifth is for our wedding day (September 5) and the Rose is for my mom, Rosie.
