Since 2005, she has led wellness trainings for public defender offices.

Based upon her own experience as a direct service provider, Caroline guides participants to identify where second-hand trauma may be impacting them. Through her workshops, service providers learn simple and effectives ways to integrate wellness practices in their professional and personal lives.
