In 2019, Carolyn graduated from Stanford University with a master's degree in environmental communication and a bachelor's degree in environmental science. She is excited to work jointly as an Alaska Fellow with the Sitka Conservation Society and the Forest Service to publicize the hard work that goes into managing the Tongass — and how awesome it is.
Raised in a tiny town in the Colorado Rockies, Carolyn has since lived all over the American West. Now, she "kind of" hails from Portland, Oregon — but feels at home generally in kitchens, under the stars, and when her feet are dirty. She loves to make sourdough bread, run, write poetry, and watch sunsets.
