Their Leaders

Carla G. Harper

NCNC GRITS Chapter Co-leader

Carla G. Harper is a writer, publisher, and marketing professional who grew up in North Carolina but wandered off to various parts of Colorado for nearly twenty years. A longing for the kind of people, smell of turned red loam, and four seasons found only in North Carolina brought her back.

She first shot Clays in a remote corner of Colorado with a homemade thrower rigged to an old tire in the back of a pick-up truck. That was a long time ago. Now, she loves practicing the art of “breaking clays” around the region at the many top-notch clubs.

Her first novel, WORTHY, was released in 2016.

She assists a wide range of individuals and businesses with traditional and digital marketing and branding through her company West 65 Inc.

She holds a BA in English from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and MS in Natural Resource Management from Colorado State University.

Carla’s one and only beautiful daughter is a proud NC State student.

Having grown up on a small farm in Jupiter, Florida, Kasey Carrere has a passion for working with natural resources. She recently moved from Florida to North Carolina as a Project Manager at Resource Environmental Solutions where she spends her week days restoring land back to its natural habitat and working with landowners. Luckily her main clientele loves hunting and shooting and invited her out to shoot sporting clays approximately two years ago and she has been shooting ever since. Falling in love with the sport, Kasey spends almost every weekend at her private shooting club shooting skeet, trap and clays and serves as the Co-Leader for the Central North Carolina G.R.I.T.S. setting up events around and near Raleigh, NC.
