Meet Carrie Brennan
"What would you try if you could not fail?" – Anonymous
Carrie Brennan is the third youngest of the Brennan clan and a 2016 graduate of James Madison University. While pursuing her degree in Communications, Carrie also fueled her creative talents while studying acting and improvisational comedy in her spare time. What started off as a curiosity, quickly developed into a potential career path that moved her to California for a summer to study sketch comedy with The Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater – originally founded by her two personal “heroes”, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
Always the practical one, Carrie realized she needed to complete her degree before following her passion and develop a plan that would allow her to continue acting, yet also be able to support herself financially. After graduation, she accepted one of Key Financial’s coveted internship opportunities and quickly put her creative genius to use with every project that was assigned. Bernadette was quick to notice this initiative in Carrie and offered her the position of Communications Analyst at the completion of the Intern Program. Carrie is now helping to spearhead our Social Media research campaign to keep Key Financial’s lines of communication current and up to date with all of our clients and their families.
Carrie is currently attending acting classes at night and on weekends to hone her craft and create a solid foundation for a future in filmmaking. In her increasingly scarcer free time, Carrie also loves to play the guitar and is working on her first screenplay.
