Caroline grew up in Kenya and started running in middle school. She would run to and from her school, which was four miles away, and the sport quickly became second nature. Caroline competed in college as a D1 athlete at the University of North Carolina, where she became the first female in her school’s history to place top ten at nationals. She also won the NCAA D1 Southeast Region cross country and advanced to Nationals, where she came in 6th place. In 2019, she joined the Army to chase Olympic gold as a WCAP Soldier-athlete.

Serving my country and participating in my sport at the same time makes me feel grateful. It also motivates me to work hard and live the army value.
