|FROM MISS USA 2003...
After receiving her Bachelor of Sciences degree in Microbiology, Chemistry, History, and Biochemistry, Carrie entered medical school and is now a 2nd year student at the University of Miami School of Medicine. Focusing on maternal fetal medicine (high-risk obstetrics), she says her dream job would be to “run a prenatal care clinic for underprivileged women.” To that end she is the spokesperson for the Florida Early Childhood Initiative and works on their Prenatal Care Committee to develop ways to better educate and assist underprivileged women to have healthy pregnancies, treats patients at the free South Miami DOCS clinic that provides treatment to the predominantly immigrant/migrant community living there and works through the Nurturing Network to provide information about abortion alternatives in the face of unplanned pregnancies to University of Miami students and single women in the community. The one personal accomplishment of which she is especially proud is publishing her honors thesis in biochemistry. “It was the culmination of two and a half years of research on a new treatment for breast and prostate cancer.”
