Download Carrie’s Audio

Carrie has been an employee benefits broker for 14 years and has the reputation of providing creative solutions and unparalleled service to the clients she serves. Carrie began her career at Norton Financial Services in July of 2011 through an acquisition of her firm, C. Baker & Associates.  Norton Financial Services provided Carrie and her team an expanded platform of services, systems and best practices beyond those of any other firm in the marketplace.

Prior to her career in employee benefits, she enjoyed an extensive career in corporate sales in the Seattle and NYC metro areas.  Carrie worked in the Human Resources Staffing and Consulting arena in Seattle and the New York City Metro area.  She also worked for a leading Fortune 500 company, a leader in the distribution of maintenance, repair and operating supplies and equipment in both Seattle and New Jersey.  Whether working in the HR Staffing Arena, selling a system of distribution, or providing employee benefit solutions, Carrie’s clients will attest that her ability to listen, process, collaborate and provide solutions is invaluable.

For many years, Carrie made her living as a classical violinist.  She continues to play as a 1st violinist with the Midcoast Symphony, a local community orchestra.  She received a full scholarship to the University of South Carolina and graduated with honors in 1982 with a Bachelor of Music Education and Performance Certificate.  She was awarded the coveted Whittenberger Fellowship to attend Boise State University to work on her Masters in Violin Performance.  Carrie maintains that the success she has enjoyed in the Employee Benefit market, is directly related to her ability to draw from her creative side as well as her analytical side.

Carrie holds her Life and Health license in the State of Maine and is a member of the National Association of Health Underwriters, Maine Chapter.  Carrie has recently joined the Advisory Board of the Salvation Army of Greater Portland.

Though music is a passion, Carrie also enjoys many sports.  She is an avid golfer and tennis player.  Her greatest joy comes from watching her son in his sporting activities, which now includes a great deal of “ice time.”  Carrie lives in Falmouth, Maine with her husband and son.X
