Prior to joining Plan Canada, Caroline was Senior Vice-President, Marketing & Development at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Foundation, where she played an instrumental role in expanding CAMH’s reach among Canadians, pioneering new engagement initiatives, and helping to reduce the stigma of mental illness. Prior to CAMH, Caroline also held several senior executive roles in the International Development sector, most recently as Senior Vice-President at World Vision Canada where she oversaw its advocacy both nationally and globally — as the first and youngest woman in the agency’s history to serve in this senior role.

She sits on the Board of the Humanitarian Coalition, is the President-elect for the Association of Fundraising Professionals GTA chapter and has sat on numerous boards and task forces including Imagine Canada and the Canadian Marketing Association’s Not-For-Profit Council. Caroline has been credited as an innovator and champion of ground-breaking and award-winning campaigns that have engaged Canadians in new ways on some of the world’s toughest issues.
