An Australian by birth, Caroline grew up and began her career in London. After graduating from Oxford University, she spent more than six years in investment banking (mainly at UBS), focused on the dynamic energy sector.
In 2015, she took part in the On Purpose program, a highly selective one-year scheme involving weekly training alongside work placements in social enterprises/charities, designed to develop leaders for the social enterprise sector. As part of her On Purpose year, Caroline worked with charities and social enterprises across the United Kingdom on developing social business ideas. She also spent six months at FareShare, a food waste charity, assisting the management team on its goals and strategy. Post-On Purpose, Caroline continued to work in the impact investing space.
In 2017, she spent time travelling in south east Asia and the United States before relocating to Sydney to commence work at Austrade.
Caroline holds a first-class degree in Mathematics and Philosophy (MMathPhil) from Oxford University and is a CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) charterholder.
