Caroline Roessler

Caroline is a third-generation Tarheel majoring in broadcast journalism and American history. Born in Alabama and bred in Arizona, she has maintained a steady affinity for both coasts. She has lopsided ears, a borderline religious reverence for Mr. Walker Percy and an unshakeable trust in the healing properties of Wild Turkey Bourbon.

In the meantime, you can find her skipping down Franklin Street or devouring a Mookie at Al's Burger Shack.
