Cary Umhau is the Founder and Creative Director of SPACIOUS. She grew up in Atlanta, went to Davidson College in North Carolina, married right away, and ended up in Washington, D.C. in 1985. Doing all the usual “build a life” things, Cary volunteered, picked up a Masters degree from Georgetown University, and mostly raised her three children with her husband, Andrew. Woven throughout those years was freelance writing for foundations and businesses and in newspapers, magazines and online. Cary spoke and taught on topics from family traditions to ranch vacations to the Bible. Along the way she had a bout with breast cancer, ran a marathon, sold hundreds of items on eBay, and traveled a bit of the world.
