Here are five other things you might not know about Caroline:
- I am actually almost 6 feet tall-- yes, I am taller than I look on TV! And I used that height to play Division 1 college basketball all four years at UNCG- Go Spartans!
- Before picking up the basketball, I was on a national championship dance team. I was quite competitive with the sport until I reached high school.
- My husband (also a former college athlete) and I absolutely LOVE to travel! We take trips as far away and often as possible. Australia, Curacao, Hawaii, Paris and London are a few of our favorite spots.
- My father was a founding member and longtime drummer for the beach music band, "The Part Time Party Time Band." They played with "The Beach Boys", "The Four Tops", and Jerry Lee Lewis to name a few. They were more recently inducted into the Beach Music Hall of Fame.
- While I was a jock who played basketball, volleyball and track and field in high school, I was also quite artistic. I was voted "most talented" by my peers for also taking part in Honors Theatre, Honors Chorus and playing in the band growing up.
