Raised on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, Caroline studied at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, before moving Paris, France, to study International Human Rights Law and photography at Institut d’Études Politiques (Sciences Po). Caroline graduated college in May of 2018 with both a bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame and a Certificate of Social Studies & Humanities from Sciences Po.
Soon after, Caroline began studying for a master’s degree in Rural Development from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, a program combining Alaska Native Studies with rural economic and community development. Her thesis work illustrates a cross-cultural comparison of identity, consumerism, and traditional Indigenous clothing and “fast fashion,” a concept defined by the modern fashion industry.
In addition to being a full-time student, Caroline is developing a new center within the University of Alaska Anchorage Business Enterprise Institute, the Alaska Center for Rural Collaboration, which will leverage existing business resources to increase accessibility to entrepreneurs and business owners in Rural Alaska. Caroline also co-founded 49th Rising, an Alaska-based advocacy group providing a platform for survivors of sexual violence to tell their stories and pushing for improved policy solutions for Alaskans.
