About me: Caroline is originally from Washington, DC. Prior to business school, she worked in impact investing for four and a half years. As a strategy and syndications officer for a non-profit investment firm, she focused on accelerating capital flows to underserved communities by structuring investment deals across renewable energy access, small business lending and affordable housing. During the pandemic, she structured and implemented recovery loan funds that offered low-cost loans to struggling small businesses in the US.

Prior to that, Caroline served as a Fulbright Fellow in Argentina, where she taught English at universities in a northern province. She graduated from Duke University with a BA in Public Policy and Spanish & Latin American Studies.

Caroline is pursuing an MBA at LBS to dive into the international investing space and sharpen her investment and management skills.

She loves hiking and exploring the outdoors, participating on sports teams and finding new live music venues.

Three topics I can be approached about: Studying with a partner; impact investing; Women in Business Club.
