Perry Carpenter is a freelance writer living in Springfield, Missouri. Her love of everything DIY was instilled from an early age by her mother. Growing up, creativity was encouraged, and Christmas prep involved making lots of homemade presents.
Perry has been a successful freelance writer since graduating from Missouri State University with a degree in journalism. She has worked on dozens of home renovations, completing projects from garage rebuilds and asbestos removal to shower installation. She has covered everything from auto repair to plumbing for DoItYourself.com.
In her spare time, Perry enjoys traveling, especially abroad. Her best friend since kindergarten has lived in many places around the world, giving Perry and her husband lots of vacation destinations. She currently has plans to visit Germany and Italy, followed by Scotland and England. Scotland especially holds a special place in her heart because of her deep Scottish roots. In fact, her profile picture was taken in Fort William, a town in the western Scottish Highlands.
Perry loves to cook for family and friends and can often be found prepping for the next big get together, whether it is a family birthday, or just another NFL Sunday.
She also volunteers by coaching youth volleyball, as well as by raising money for her father’s memorial scholarship fund.
