After her first job at Mod Pizza in Gainesville, Caroline acquired great customer service skills and moved on to larger opportunities with her internship at First Coast News in Jacksonville, Florida.

During her apartment search at the end of freshman year of college, Caroline actually used the Swamp Rentals search engine to navigate the complicated Gainesville real estate market and find her dream apartment that checked off all her boxes. She has been living in her current apartment building with her roommate since sophomore year and plans to stay. It is located in close proximity to the University of Florida campus, which was very important for her during her apartment hunt. She says that the central location of in between midtown and downtown is great for walking and everything she needs is easily accessible. The building was a gem to uncover because the older but renovated style gives it a great quirkiness and charm. She loves to thrift furniture and redo unique finds to add character to the decor of her space and really make it her own. She met her roommate on Facebook last year, and the apartment brought them together and now they even are great friends!
Originally from Virginia, Caroline moved to Florida just before starting high school. After living in Jacksonville for a while, she found herself really missing the cold northern weather at first and was reluctant to the change. Relocating to her new town was definitely a big adjustment. Now, she can appreciate all the Florida had to offer and really enjoys going to school here. Caroline's many personal interests include outdoor activities such as hiking and kayaking. She loves being physically active after years of playing competitive basketball and volleyball, so she frequents the gym often. Finally, one of her favorite things to do is to try new recipes and cook in her apartment kitchen. Fun Fact: when she doesn't cook at home Caroline loves to stop by Krishna Lunch on UF campus!
