About Us

Company Background

Elevated Wisdom was founded by Debra Carter and Kerrie Clift. This mother-daughter duo have a vision of the future where we are no longer plugged into the “Matrix”. This new world would give each person the opportunity to align with and identify their true calling. Joy, love, and peace would be experienced by all. To get to this place, we need to ascend as a species and as a plant. Debra and Kerrie founded Elevated Wisdom and Elevated Explorer to help others find the keys to their personal ascension that will in turn help Gaia to ascend.

They realized that the only way their plan could come to fruition was to take a leap of faith and create a partnership. As compassionate and energetic souls who are eager to assists others’ personal journey and development, Debra and Kerrie have been building towards this endeavor for the past decade. They are now excited to share their combined experiences with other individuals.

Debra Clift Carter

From an outsider’s perspective, Debra looked like she has had it all for many years. Her college education and steady well-paying job provided her a taste of the American Dream. However, from her perspective, she was overworked, in debt, miserable, unfulfilled, and empty inside. She knew there was more to life than 15-hour workdays, stress, bills, and the demands of a so-called “successful” life.

As a survivor of corporate America, Debra Carter no longer believes in the limitations placed on humanity by individuals who are in “power.” She is a mother of three wonderful children: two daughters, and a son. Debra has attained a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and has been in the insurance industry for more than 39 years, serving as a director for the past decade.

In her many corporate roles Debra has been an event planner, mentor, coach, public speaker, and trainer which has provided her with many opportunities to help others learn and grow. She has also had the chance to deal directly with customers, medical professionals, and hospital administrators. This has given her an insider’s perspective on how the health care delivery system works and how it can be enhanced.

About 10 years ago, Debra began to open her eyes and see things from a different vantage point. She has a ever growing appreciation and awe of how energy works and how it can be used help us achieve our desires. Debra is now a Certified Registered Master Teacher in Usui, Lemurian Light & Reiki of the Atlantians, Money Reiki, Karuna®, and Sekhem Seichim Reiki systems. She is also a Certified Soul Realignment Practitioner, a student of Lightarian™ programs an Oracle Card Reader and can offer multiple forms of energy work, coaching sessions, and trainings for her clients. She has studied a wide range of energy modalities and completed courses offered by local and internationally known practitioners such as Vishen Lakhiani, Carol Tuttle, Nick and Jessica Ortner, Lisa Nichols, Burt Goldman, Sonia Choquette, Andrrea Hess, Jared Hewett, Melinda Lee, Marilyn Jenett, Lynn Waldrop, Valerie Pearson, Bonnie Serratore, Gene Ang, Jose Silva, Jon Gabriel, Bob Proctor, Michael Beckwith, Jack Canfield, Sophia West, Anne-Marie Revello, and Nikolaos Baralos.

Together with her eldest daughter, Kerrie, Debra facilitates spiritual retreats through their travel company, Elevated Explorer. She can also help you plan for and arrange a wide array of travel experiences from business, to weekend get-aways, to a well deserved Trip of a Lifetime.

Kerrie Clift

While still in high school Kerrie began searching for the meaning of life. Her journey led her to discover Wicca and the peace and harmony that this way of life promotes. Over the past 14 years Kerrie has explored the beauty of Gaia and incorporated the teachings and symbolisms of Wicca in her life.

Kerrie opened her design and construction company more than 9 years ago, after graduating with honors in only 3 years from the prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design. She and her husband have renovated and restored numerous properties in the Baltimore Metropolitan area.

Kerrie has long had a passion for redefining urban living and incorporating a healthier and more holistic approach to how people live within the confines of city life. Incorporating natural materials and aspects of the great outdoors with modern design elements such as clean lines and bright airy spaces are her trademark.

Reducing clutter, clearing negativity, and other Feng Shui principles are all part of Kerrie’s designs, leaving her clients with a freshly energized space to call home.

She is looking forward to manifesting a new community of like-minded individuals who live, work, and play together in energy-efficient, Gaia-friendly, health-conscious, and joyous neighborhoods where they can raise their families.  She also has a passion for crystals and jewelry making and has created many inspired and unique designs.  Kerrie’s crystal grids, bracelets, and necklaces are available in the Elevated Wisdom Shop along with her handcrafted feather fans and smudge boxes.
