Dr. Carraway, originally from Georgia, has lived in Greenville since 2018. There are several things that attracted him to the upstate. Dr. Carraway’s wife, Neely, who he met while in dental school, is originally from Greenville. She wanted to return back to Greenville to be close to family and friends and Dr. Carraway couldn’t resist Greenville’s beautiful downtown and the proximity to incredible lakes and mountains. Not being too far from Athens, where the Georgia bulldogs play, is an added perk to living in the upstate!
Dr. Carraway grew up spending a lot of time outdoors, frequently visiting the lake, beach, and mountains and he still enjoys spending time outdoors. Whether he is out on the lake participating in water sports or on the swamp rabbit trail riding his bike, Dr. Carraway is happiest when outdoors and with his family and friends. Family is very important to Dr. Carraway and Greenville is a great halfway point for visiting with his family members who are spread out across the southeast. Speaking of family, Dr. Carraway and his wife are expecting their first child in the summer of 2022 and they are thrilled to be adding a little boy to their family. The jury is still out if he will be a Georgia Bulldog or Clemson tiger (where Neely attended undergraduate studies)!
