An accomplished listee, Ms. Carey celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Ms. Carey retired in 2011 after 28 years as an audiovisual producer and book production consultant for Twenty-Third Publications in Mystic, Connecticut, which later relocated to New London, CT, under new ownership as Bayard, Inc.
