Carrie Zimmerman - Secretary

My name is Carrie Zimmerman and I have been a GFWC-SC member for 9 years.  I am a current member of the Walhalla Junior Women's Club and a member of the GFWC-SC L.E.A.D.S Club.  I am married to my husband Jason of 17 years and have two children, Zoe 14 and Gavin 7.  We live in the Upstate of SC in Tamassee, SC.

I have lived in SC for 17 years and have worked for the State of SC in the human service field for 15 years.  I currently work for Continuum of Care, a division of The Department of Administration as a Wrap Facilitator. 

Volunteering is something I have done most of my life.  When I moved to SC volunteerism was a way for me to meet new people and make new friends.  My volunteerism in SC has included church children's activities, school events, recreation Coach for 11 years, Past Board member of Christmas W/Hero and past Board member of the Walhalla Civic Auditorium.

 My history with GFWC-SC started when friend, Sandra Mattox, a founding member of WJWC, brought me to a meeting of WJWC in 2007 and I was hooked.   After the first year I was nominated to the executive committee as Secretary and have been on the executive committee ever since and have filled position of Treasurer, 2nd VP, 1st VP, and I became President of WJWC of WJWC in 2011 for 2 years.   I was appointed GFWC-SC NW District President by Past President, JoAnn Bolchez in 2013.  I was re-elected by my NW District peers to this position for the 2014-2016 term. 

I have attended and volunteered in GFWC-SC conventions since 2008, and went to Southern Region in 2014.  In 2015, I was Co-Chairman of the 2015 GFWC-SC Convention in Greeville along with Norma England from North Central District.   I was selected as the 2015 L.E.A.D.S candidate and attended part of the 2015 International GFWC convention in Memphis, TN.

I feel I am able to Lead our Juniors well in the 2018-2020 term and will assist and support our current President, Katie Jones-Moydell in 2016-2018 term.  I understand the vision of "Living the Volunteer Spirit" and enjoy sharing my knowledge with others to grow GFWC-SC  membership, especially the Juniors!
