Caroline grew up on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. There she gained an appreciation for nature, specifically for barrier islands, salt marsh estuaries, longleaf pine forests, and all of their inhabitants. Caroline studied Environmental Science and Biology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, where she gained a well-rounded repertoire in environmental sciences, with an emphasis in ornithology, ecology, and natural resource management. Caroline hopes to put forth her passions and skills to make a lasting impact in natural resource and wildlife conservation.
Caroline ventured out west to Point Reyes National Seashore in March 2020 and began her first season of monitoring Northern Spotted Owls with Point Blue Conservation Science. Now, Caroline is working as a PRNSA Wildlife Intern, working with Point Reyes National Seashore biologists to monitor Northern Spotted Owls and Western Snowy Plovers, two threatened bird species in the park.
