Name: Carrie Sell
Location: Grand Forks, ND
Born and raised in central MN. I attended college at St. Cloud State University where I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies, with an emphasis in leadership and organizational communication. Along with my major, I had also minored in Communication Studies, with a focus on conflict management. During my time at SCSU, I attended additional training to become a Minnesota Court-Approved Neutral in civil and family mediation.
My family has an extensive background in sales as well as owning multiple car dealerships and other sales ventures. Working in sales and customer service is in my blood as well as my passion. Prior to joining the Leighton broadcasting team, I was the Store Manager and lead sales at Apricot Lane St. Cloud.
Why you love your work:
What’s not to love? A fun atmosphere that requires you to work alongside people who have a passion for helping members of their community is an amazing place to be. Being able to be out there and hear the stories from different businesses while finding new creative ways to help them grow is an absolute rush.
Random facts about yourself (personal, professional, anything interesting):
I have a huge soft spot for anything that has fur! I have a husky named Sasha as well as two rescue cats. Eventually, I would love to be able to have a place in the country where I could help with animal rescue and adoption. Since working at Apricot Lane, it’s safe to say that I also have a love for fashion and trying new trends and styles. I also enjoy spending time at my cabin in Fifty Lakes, MN and going to watch dirt track racing as much as possible.
