After earning a Business degree from Michigan State and a Law Degree from Wayne State, Carrie opened her first studio in Birmingham, MI in 2001 where she developed the Pure Barre workout. Carrie lived like a gypsy as she personally moved all over the country opening Pure Barre locations in different markets and began franchising the concept in July 2009 while living in LA. She has since created an extensive line of DVDs and exercise equipment. Carrie is a member of the Entrepreneur’s Organization as well as being involved with the Summit Series, Renaissance and the Legacy Foundation. She is a guest speaker on entrepreneurship and franchising for the MBA programs at the University of Southern California and the University of Colorado. Carrie is passionate about giving back to the community and launched the Pure Give movement in 2009. In 2009 while visiting the Pure Barre Denver studio, Carrie was completely caught off guard when she met Frank Dorr. They were married in 2011 and live in Boulder & Vail with their son Luke, two twin girls, Ruby and Ellie, and two labs, Logan and Moe.
