hello! I'm so glad you're here.
Welcome to the studio.

the dreamer, doer & designer at hello story.
We believe the most important component in branding is the human behind it. That thoughtful, intuitive brand stories should be authentic—because human connection thrives on authenticity.
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 an occasional tap dancer.
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 few years working as a freelance content writer, website designer and social media manager. In launching my own company, Hello Story, I find myself at the beginning of a new chapter—and I’m only halfway through the book of life.
enough about me!

I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT…
Jesus, family, and my friends. I love Kraig Stockdale, who still calls me his bride after 24 years, and I’m crazy about our grown children, Caroline and Brody. I love my people, our puppy, spicy margaritas, the great outdoors, dinners at the table, rowdy game nights, lots of laughter, and celebrating others.
