She provides comprehensive legal, logistical, and financial counsel to organizations that are making an impact in our neighborhoods. With specific concentration on food security and affordable housing, Carlie supports businesses, nonprofits, and community groups to make catalytic ideas come to life.

Previously, she worked at the Ohio Housing Finance Agency, overseeing affordable housing programs and setting the State’s policy agenda. While at OHFA, she developed the Qualified Allocation Plan, oversaw the Ohio and National Housing Trust Fund Allocation Plans, and created the FHAct50 Building Opportunity Fund. Prior to that, she directed housing and economic recovery programming, including the Neighborhood Initiative Program and Save the Dream Ohio. After graduating from the Ohio State University and Case Western Reserve University School of Law, Carlie practiced as a consumer rights and housing attorney and consulted for The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law’s faculty on consumer rights issues.

She also volunteers with Move to PROSPER and Equitas Health’s Legal Clinic.

When asked how LASC makes a difference in the lives of low-income clients, she said, “I truly respect LASC’s modern, collaborative, and comprehensive approach to eliminating poverty. Not only do we provide individualized representation to clients in crisis, but we also assist groups crafting proactive, innovative ways out of poverty and legal services to enterprises that are trying to create a more equitable society.  This holistic approach is uncommon in the social service sector and a hallmark of LASC’s deep commitment to economic justice.”
