Studio Manager
Carrie Karl
"Curiosity is a form of bravery."

It may have killed the cat, but Carrie Karl isn’t scared of a little curiosity. Pivot’s studio manager never wants to stop learning. “Curiosity leads me to explore the world,” she says. “It gets me on my bike. It sends me to new countries. I have curiosity to thank for my best adventures.”

She’s certainly had a lot of those. Carrie has explored more than 20 countries and 40 US states, backpacking through both Europe and the United States. And as an avid mountain biker, she has explored trails throughout Indiana and beyond. She’s a member of the Hoosier Mountain Bike Association as well as IndyCog. She spent more than 15 years as a restaurant manager, using her curiosity to lead multiple conceptual redesigns.

Carrie also enjoys fostering others’ curiosity. In her last role as a learning center manager at Lindamood-Bell, she empowered students to learn. At Pivot, she keeps the team on their game. And as a mother, she guides her son, Carsten, as curiosity leads him to explore the world.

Carrie loves getting to know new people, especially over a good cup of coffee. And if you were curious, George Harrison is her favorite Beatle.
