In February 2017, Caroline founded her first restaurant, Annette, which was named one of the “50 Best New Restaurants” by Bon Appétit and “Restaurant of the Year” by Eater Denver that same year. Annette has been on 5280 Magazine’s list of Denver’s 25 best restaurants each year since it opened.

Caroline was featured in the 2019 class of Food & Wine’s “Best New Chefs,” celebrating the unique culinary point of view honed through her past experience and celebrated at Annette. In 2022, Caroline won the James Beard Foundation Award in the “Best Chef: Mountain” category.
Caroline graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and spent an additional two years in NYC at The Spotted Pig, a pioneering gastropub run by famed British chef April Bloomfield. Seeking to expand her food system awareness, Caroline went on to spend several years working on farms in Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Colorado, experiences that inform her cooking to this day.
Winter 2023 brought the opening of Caroline’s second project, Traveling Mercies, a neighborhood oyster and cocktail bar. In her free time, Caroline enjoys running, watching trashy TV, and hanging out with her daughter, Franny.
