Executive Director, Tennessee Broadband Association
Speaker, StoryConnect: The Conference
We love to see our staff shine. Carrie joined the Tennessee Broadband Association at the end of 2021 as the association's executive director. We miss her, but we can't wait to see how her ideas energize broadband outreach through her new position.
Carrie supported Utility Pioneers as our Director of Strategy and Training from 2018 to 2021. She called it her “encore career” after spending 30 years in the cooperative telecom environment. Carrie says her time in customer service and sales better prepared her for the marketing role since there is no better place to learn the products and services and get customer feedback.
Carrie and her husband, David, bought her parents’ home and farmland in 2016. After two years of slow renovation, they made the final move in November 2018. The Huckebys have two children, Kelci and Nelson, and two beautiful grandchildren, Addison and Rylan. They split their time between sunset watching from the back porch and traveling to Mississippi to see the grandbabies.
Carrie has two beehives and is trying to learn the science of beekeeping. She earned her MBA from Bethel University in 2016, and in 2018, Carrie and a few of her friends kicked off The Power of 100 Warren County. The organization has 130 ladies as members and donates funds to a local charity each quarter.
