Faces of KNOW: Carrie Garcia
Today’s spotlight is on Carrie Garcia, C.A.O. and partner in business ventures for LGE Design Build. She is a leading force for one of the Valley’s top commercial design building firms and a 2019 KNOW Phoenix featuree.
We wanted to get to know Carrie a little bit better so we asked her to answer some fun facts about herself.
Her favorite past time: Spending time with her daughter, shopping, going to Farmer’s markets, working out, and self care.
Her favorite food: Mexican!
Her bucket list item: Trip to Italy.
Hobbies outside of work: She loves music. Rap, hip-hop, R&B, and classic rock to be exact! She says dancing is usually involved when listening to music.
Carrie has an inspiring story about overcoming a childhood filled with setbacks, heartbreaks, and challenges. You can read more about her story in our 2019 Phoenix KNOW book on page 35. Although she faced challenging experiences at a young age, she learned so much about moving forward and how to “just keep going.” She has grown into an ambitious women who is not only a successful business professional and mother, but a woman filled with perseverance and empathy.
Her authentic spirit shined through when she spoke about which LGE core value described her best. She replied “Communication – because she enjoys connecting with everyone, lending a listening ear, uplifting, supporting and mentoring (people)” and also “Dependability – because she will always be there, when and if she is needed.” We are so happy to have you as part of the KNOW tribe, Carrie. It’s no wonder her nickname is “Carebear!”
LGE has been having a lot of expansion. They have their ribbon cutting ceremony in January to celebrate moving into a new headquarters, and they have just recently started a residential division! Find Carrie on Linkedin at Carrie Garcia Chief Administrative Officer.
