Caroline has always been driven by a desire to make a positive difference in the world. She moved to Seattle after graduating Magna Cum Laude from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) with both a Bachelor of Architecture and a Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance. Drawn by a city full of forward thinking design, cutting edge sustainability, and an active community of passionate individuals and organizations, she began her career working on affordable housing and senior housing - seeking out work that was for the greater good. Caroline became a licensed architect in the State of Washington in 2010. She is also a Certified Sustainable Building Advisor and a LEED AP BD+C. Compelled to design with a minimal impact on the earth, she has pursued organizations with a focus on environmentally sensitive design and opportunities to dive deeper into research and sustainability initiatives. She continues to seek a career path in which her talents and passion intersect to make a positive difference in her community and the world.
Caroline was an ArtsFund Associate from 2008-2013 and completed their Board Leadership Training program in 2010. She has served on the Board of Directors for Town Hall Seattle since 2011, and as Chair of the Building Committee from 2011-1019, she has been an integral part of planning a $35 million capital campaign and sustainable renovation of their historic building. Due to this leadership, she has been asked to serve as the next Board President.
