Carrie Wiita grew up riding horses and playing in the mud in Portland, Oregon. Her theatrical debut was at age 6 as a baby angel in the Lakewood Community Theater's production of "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever." At 9, she began her professional career, starting with three years hosting the regional children's news show "Popcorn." She followed this with several commercials, industrials and an educational ESL series for Japanese cable (no, she doesn't speak Japanese - it just worked somehow). She recently graduated from UCLA summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa.
In television, Carrie broke through with roles on "Weeds," "Heroes," and a recurring role on the last season of Comedy Central's "Reno 911," before moving up to guest star roles on "The Mentalist," "N.C.I.S.," "Community," "The Protector," and "Friends with Benefits." She was cast as a series regular lead in two 2010 projects: Tom Lennon and Ben Garant's NBC pilot, "The Strip," and a sketch comedy pilot for Fox called "Inside Jokes." She was the female lead in the Here! Network's televised adaptation of "Spring Awakening" and starred as Shelley Long's daughter in Hallmark Channel's "A Holiday Engagement." She also has a supporting role in the 2012 feature, "I Hate You Dad" starring Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg. Carrie remains a proud member of LA's Sacred Fools Theatre Company.
