Carrie Locklyn Dancer

Carrie is a former professional dancer who began the career at the age of 17. She danced on Saturday Night Live and on national commercials, as well as stage performances with Jimmy Fallon, James Brown, Mariah Carey and others. “After touring for two years with Mariah, I decided I didn’t want to go back on the road. My friends thought I was ridiculous, but I wanted something different.”

Carrie Locklyn Designer

Locklyn is a designer whose love for home design and project management began when she started to organize friend’s homes as a job on the side. In 2011 she founded GIDGLiving: a boutique interior design, home organizing and certified staging company. GIDGLiving helps homeowners and local businesses revive and update their spaces through accessible designs and practical organization.

During an interview with NJ Monthly she said; “I moved to California in 2003 and, in 2006, my boyfriend-now-husband and I bought a foreclosed house. We did some pretty interesting things with it, and word got around. Based on that interior-design project, my new career began to blossom. I was known around L.A. as the get-it-done-girl, so that’s how my GIDGLiving business began.

I spread my wings after friend, fellow artist [and superstar-musician] Prince’s first wife, Mayte Garcia, invited me to help with her homes. She suggested that I do a home-design show. With that thought, we moved back to New Jersey in 2014. I was pregnant, and my goal was to raise a child while building my design business.”
