Two women, one mission. To support others to thrive.
When Sydne and Carlee first met, it was love at first sight (from a professional perspective). Sydne expressed her desire to “change the world” and Carlee laughed, because that’s what she does when she’s nervous. She could tell Syd wasn’t kidding. Carlee started to tear up thinking of how many people face challenges in their lives. She said, “I just want everyone to thrive and live a fulfilling life.”
Shortly after that meeting, Carlee joined the MRK team as the Director of Resident Services. Their initial desire to change the world and provide opportunity remained topics of discussion. The COVID pandemic was the final push they needed.
During 2020 and 2021, Sydne and Carlee asked family and friends to provide critical support to the residents of MRK’s 20+ communities. Generous donors answered the call with enthusiasm. Carlee and Sydne were inspired by the acts of kindness they witnessed. It seemed that changing the world was a motivation shared by others.
It was a Saturday morning in the beginning of 2022 when the plan finally became clear. On a staycation in South Florida, Sydne and her husband Marc landed on home ownership as the priority.
