Caroline moved to Lincolnshire from London over 20 years ago with her husband and five-day old son.
Originally trained as a barrister with a career in London as a journalist and magazine editor, she has run her own Lincolnshire-based business for two decades. For ten years, an award-winning PR agency with many regional and national clients and a special emphasis on food and also economic regeneration in the East Midlands, and since 2011, an international awards company with projects in the UK and USA.
She stood for the Liberal Democrats for the first time in the 2017 General Election. During the campaign, she became aware of the exceptional levels of food poverty in the city and founded the Lincoln Food Summit, an informal cross-party, multi-faith grouping of people and organisations involved in this field, to help tackle problems on a practical level.
She has also been involved in local campaigns such as Stop Veolia, which fought against the planned expansion of a waste recycling unit in Lincoln as well as the Skellingthorpe campaign against the expansion of an animal rendering plant.
Last summer, she walked by herself round the constituency of Lincoln over 5 days and raised £1500 for The Nomad Trust, the local charity for the homeless run by the YMCA.
Her great interests include business as a force for good, food, health (her step-daughter is a GP) and agriculture, and the Armed Forces, having been an Army wife for some years.
