When Carew began her career in Hospitality, it was a male dominated industry. Female GM’s or women in executive roles were non-existent. When she was 21 years old she was working as Guest Service Manager and realized that she wanted to be a GM and was going to have to work hard to get there, which she did.
Carew has been married to her husband Mike for 29 years. She has two children and three grandchildren. When she is not working, she enjoys family time, long walks with their dog Rudy, wine tasting and photography.
