We’re thrilled to welcome Carrie Abeling as the newest member of our Account Service Team.

Carrie earned a bachelor’s in advertising, a social media minor, and a graphic design certificate from South Dakota State University last spring. She has a diverse background that includes in-house marketing, agency experience, graphic design, photography, social media, digital marketing and more.

“We’re thrilled to add Carrie to our Account Service team,” says Marcus Squier, Paulsen President & CEO. “If you name a marketing tactic, Carrie has probably done it. That knowledge paired with her strategic thinking and problem solving makes her a great asset to our clients.”

“I enjoyed being on the creative side of marketing but account service feels like a natural fit,” said Carrie, who began her role as Account Coordinator in August. “I’m a strategic thinker and I love learning new things. I’m enjoying the diversity in my work and meeting new clients.”

Carrie is originally from West Des Moines, Iowa. She grew up learning photography from her dad, Brian Abeling, who is well known for his Iowa Road Trip images. Carrie credits her dad’s passion as the reason for her career path. “It made me ask myself, ‘Can I tie this into a career and what can I do with it?’”

Outside of work, Carrie enjoys working out, trying new coffee shops and spending time with friends. She is also musically trained in piano, cello and saxophone, so she loves playing music to unwind.
