An “early-adopter” with an entrepreneurial spirit, Caroline is passionate about working with those pursuing their own ventures. She strives to serve her clients by providing efficient resolution of legal matters – leaving them with the time and energy to focus on other aspects of their business – and being a resource for strategy, perspective, and network growth.
Prior to law school, Caroline graduated cum laude from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. After graduating, she served as a Health and Environment Volunteer in the United States Peace Corps in Niger and Madagascar. Upon returning home, she worked with the advertising and marketing teams at Texas Monthly.
