our founder


I’m a storyteller, brand strategist, business owner, and a girls-girl.

I'm a dreamer—just like you.


Hello! I'm so glad you're here. I’m Carrie, the creative force behind Hello Story. I’m passionate about building memorable brands and marketing them strategically to your dream clients. I’m committed to investing in you and championing you in your daring entrepreneurship. I’m a storyteller, a brand strategist, a business owner, and a girls-girl.


And I just hit half a century.


I hold degrees in literature, fine arts and humanities. I began my career as an educator and fine arts director, and I’ve been a curriculum author, editor, teacher, and stay-at-home mama most of my life. I’ve studied marketing and brand development and have spent the last several years working as a freelance content writer, website designer and social media manager. I launched my own company, Hello Story, in 2020. I'm thrilled to find myself in a new chapter—and I’m only halfway through the book of life.


all about

Jesus, family, girlfriends, authenticity, nature, laughter, dogs, spicy margs, celebrating others.

not about

artificial people or flavoring, hustle culture,

comparison, people pleasing, beets.

our social media manager


I'm a brand specialist, a social media manager, a Certified Personal Trainer, and a Denver girl.

Hi everyone! I’m Ivy, the Social Media Manager and assistant to Hello Story Founder & CEO, Carrie Stockdale. I graduated from Baylor University, where I studied Marketing and Corporate Communications and then continued my studies to pursue my passion, Holistic Nutrition and Naturopathic healing, at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York! I am also a Certified Personal Trainer and specialize in fat loss, gut health, and a holistic approach to movement for your body type and goals at ivygfit.com

My passion for holistic wellness, fitness, and social media management took off when I started my own small business. I quickly discovered the power of social media and the importance of digital marketing for business growth. I strongly believe social media will remain a valuable communication avenue for your customers and potential clients because it generates brand awareness, increases site traffic, promotes your services and expertise, creates brand credibility and allows millions of users on social platforms to discover YOUR brand, YOUR why, and YOUR story. My mission is to elevate, transform, and grow one-of-a-kind businesses that bring your vision to life across digital platforms!

I am thrilled to be here and excited to bring your brand to life!
