An Alabama native, Caroline grew up on a farm outside of Florence and inherited a passion for public service from her parents and grandparents, who all worked tirelessly to make North Alabama a better place and to help provide opportunities to all. Growing up, Caroline knew she would pursue a career in public service.
Caroline graduated first in her class from Bradshaw High School in 1995. She was 1995 Alabama’s Junior Miss and a United States Presidential Scholar. While a student at Harvard University, Caroline worked as an Intern for Former Congressman Bud Cramer (D-AL) and as an intern in Oval Office Operations in the Clinton White House. After graduating from Harvard with a B.A. in Government, Caroline returned to the White House and served as Special Assistant to the Director of Presidential Scheduling. She later earned a law degree from Fordham University School of Law and is a licensed attorney in Alabama and California.
After law school, Caroline found that she excelled at telling the stories of Americans from all walks of life. She has worked all over the country as a producer and editor on television series for CBS, ABC, FOX, Bravo, Lifetime, Discovery, Facebook and MTV. She has worked as an Executive Producer on such series as “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”, “Manzo’d with Children”, and “Blood, Sweat and Heels”.
Telling Your Story
In 2017, no longer content with only telling stories, Caroline decided to return home to Alabama to work to make the stories of Alabamians better. She’s running for the single mom struggling to make ends meet. She’s running for the young person who has to leave Alabama to find a good job. She’s running to change Alabama’s story – our state is near the bottom in every ranking of quality of life – 46thin healthcare, 47thin education, 47thin per capita income, 50thin professional opportunities for women, and 50thin infant mortality. Caroline is running to make Alabama’s story better.
