Caroline has over four years of health communications and policy experience across various sectors. She first became interested in health communications as an intern for a public health nonprofit in Philadelphia, and from there, found various related internship opportunities, which eventually led to her landing a role as a Communications Coordinator at Thrive DC. Thrive DC, a nonprofit committed to preventing and ending homelessness in Washington, DC, allowed her the opportunity to work with the community during COVID-19, where she saw firsthand how the pandemic disproportionally impacted communities underrepresented in health care. Alongside her colleagues, Caroline helped support those disproportionately impacted and used social media as an outlet to share client stories and address how longstanding health disparities led to an unequal pandemic.
In 2021, Caroline began working at Ketchum, a world-wide communications firm, on their Public Sector and Government team where she supported the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid
Services Office of Minority Health (CMS OMH) and the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW) with communications and outreach. During her time at Ketchum, she helped develop tailored health literacy materials for CMS OMH, increased awareness of CMS OMH’s mission and work, served as a key project lead on CMS OMH and HRSA BHW communications, and managed HRSA BHW’s social media channels.
Caroline received her B.A. in English from the Catholic University of America in 2020. Currently, Caroline is working towards her Masters in Public Health degree with a concentration in Health Policy at George Washington University. In her free time, Caroline enjoys going on walks around Washington, DC, reading, and cooking.
