Carley Shimkus’ Bio, Age
She was born Carley Noelle Shimkus on November 7, 1986, in Long Valley, New Jersey and was raised alongside her elder sister Margot. There is no information regarding her early education or her high school education. As a teenager with good looks, a great physique and a good height, Carley decided to give modelling a shot.
