Meet Senator Carrie Ruud

“My faith and family keep me grounded”

Carrie was born and raised in Minnesota. She currently resides in Breezy Point with her husband Dick. Together they have five children, 18 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.

Carrie and Dick are Broker/Owners along with their partner Jim of Lakes & Leisure Realty, Inc. in Breezy Point. They have been in business over 25 years.

Carrie and Dick enjoy hunting and fishing. They have a deer hunting camp that has become a family tradition making many memories and “Tall Tales”. Spring crappie fishing brings the grandkids to the dock after a winter of walleyes through the ice. Fall of course is for pheasants and ducks!

Carrie is passionate about the outdoors. Always looking for a challenge Carrie and her son race in inline marathons. Carrie also competes in snow shoe racing and won a gold medal in 2015 and bronze in 2016 at the National Snow Shoe Championships. Carrie loves inline skating, running, cycling, snow shoeing, skiing, hiking, kayaking, anything that brings her into the great outdoors.
