My name is Carie Carpenter, and I grew up in Southwest Kansas on a farm/ranch. My husband and I raise cattle and live between Summerfield and Leflore, Oklahoma. My husband works with the Choctaw Nation in the forestry department in Talihina, Oklahoma. I have a fourth grade daughter named Ashlyn and a small baby boy. We love horses and like to barrel race and team rope in our spare time. I also enjoy swimming, reading, and riding four-wheelers.
