Carie Lucas, Treasurer
Carie has a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of North Texas, but spent most of her career in office management, including 18 years at the Reebok sales office in Irving, TX. She grew up in Dallas and after 45 years in Texas, decided to run away to the Emerald Coast of Florida. There she managed Dalton Brothers Construction until the 2006 housing market crash. She stayed with the same owner and helped start a restoration company called Action Restoration of the Panhandle. After 10 years in Florida, Carie decided to head back to Texas to be closer to her three children and growing number of grandchildren. Numbers are her passion (she loves to balance a bank statement), so naturally she was a perfect fit as Treasurer of Pride Inclusive Sports. Her motto is "Live, Love and Laugh", she is proud to be a part of this organization and is excited to see the vision spread nation wide.
Carie bring excellence with numbers and contagious joy to our Pride.
