Carolyn attended law school at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia, where she enjoyed honing her skills in negotiation and litigation while interning in prosecutors’ offices. Following graduation, she moved to North Carolina, where she practiced as a Litigation Associate for a personal injury firm in Charlotte, North Carolina.
