Carey Earle

Carey brings an urban spirit and a rural soul to her outlook on life. A farmer’s daughter who grew up in Vermont and spent 20 years in New York City, writing has always been a part of her DNA. She began her career as a copywriter on Madison Avenue, since then she has co-authored two books, and written presentations and blog posts on everything from artisanal cheese to personal branding in a digital world.

She is assistant vice president of branding at National Life Group. A former small business owner, she brings an entrepreneurial eye to everything she does and believes in the power of compelling communication (imagery, words, music) to change the world.

To test her resilience, she lives in a 200 year-old farmhouse on a back road in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.
