As a rising sophomore at Carnegie Mellon University, Caroline has found a passion for her academics but other extracurricular activities. Caroline is studying Civil and Environmental Engineer, but in her free time is a member of the Triathlon Club, Explorers Club, and a member of the Club Swim Team. Caroline has had lots of experience with Moondance as she participated in four trips as a student. Caroline went on our California, Colorado trail, Maui and Pacific Northwest trip and had a blast. Her own Moondance experience changed her life, instilling in her an appreciation for the beauty of the outdoors and a desire to share it with others. Her love for Moondance was reflected in her incredible summer leading Northern Lights in 2022, and she has so much more to share during her second summer!
