Carlin has several years of professional experience in media, design, events, PR, marketing, and social media. She has worked in a variety of sectors ranging from fine art to print media to public relations to hospitality to financial services. Throughout her education and professional career, Carlin has always been interested in the roles that communication and design have on the ways in which individuals respond, behave and interact with information.

After signing on with Meyler in 2013, she continues to be more and more fuelled by the lack of design and creativity within the alternative investments sector. She is a firm believer in the power of truly being different in a sea sameness.

Carlin holds BA degrees in Communications, Marketing and Studio Arts, from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She has also received a graduate certificate in Interaction Design, which focused on design and programming of web and applications, from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, BC.
