About Carly

I'm currently the metro reporter for New Orleans' NPR station, where I focus primarily on housing, transit, and disaster preparedness and recovery. If you've got a story or tip that falls under one of those umbrellas, give me a shout at my WWNO email: [email protected]

I'm part-time and have some availability for freelance projects, like tape-syncs and fact-checking gigs. If you've got a freelance assignment, get in touch with me at [email protected]

From April 2020 through December 2021, I was the Gulf Coast Correspondent for Southerly, where my work focused on disaster recovery across south Louisiana during two record-breaking hurricane seasons. Much of that reporting centered on the aftermath of Hurricanes Laura and Delta in Lake Charles, and was supported by a grant from the Pulitzer Center

As a freelancer, I've written about everything from refugee resettlement in Georgia for the Bitter Southerner, to the oil industry and incarceration in Louisiana for Scalawag, to a traveling rabbi serving the South's small-town synagogues for the Oxford American.

I grew up in Atlanta and earned a BA in English with a Creative Writing concentration from Bowdoin College in 2018.
