About Caroline Merrill
I am a girl from the NC Mountains who found my way to the coast via UNC Wilmington circa 2010. As a 2012 graduate of UNCW with a degree in Communication Studies, I have held a number of jobs within the sports industry. A former collegiate volleyball player, I have taken my talents to the coaching side of the game. For the past five years I have coached locally for Cape Fear Volleyball Club. I have coached the 14 National Team, 16 National Team and now the Developmental Program, which is comprised of 7-11 year olds learning the game of volleyball. During the summer of 2012, I was one of 25 interns at the Philadelphia Eagles Training Camp. Through this internship, I discovered my love for the Eagles, WaWa, Geno’s cheesesteak and team gossip. After completing this internship, I started a year long internship with the UNC Wilmington Sports Marketing Department before accepting a Marketing and Public Relations position with a local land development firm. After gaining valubable experience, I became the Regional Director of Catering for the Wilmington and Jacksonville Mission BBQ locations. It was at Mission BBQ where I became known as “Yung H8r” and “Shady” and where I met my brother from another mother, Nuts & Bolts founder, Joe Cardoso. After a year at Mission BBQ, I accepted a position at a global management consulting firm, The Forte Institute, where I handle their Client Services. My favorite things include Philadelphia Eagles Football, UNC Tarheels Basketball, Anderson University Women’s Basketball, Hip Hop (Fetty Wap is everything), Pure Barre, bottles and bottles of wine, a good bowl of queso and chips, and reality TV.
