Caroline and Alicia at Sail BostonProudest moment working at Conventures?
Sail Boston 2017. I joined the Sail Boston team as soon as I was hired as a full time employee, and from then until the event, it was pretty much Sail Boston all day every day. All of the hard work and long days were worth meeting such great people from all over the world and seeing those ships sail in on Parade of Sail day.

If you could work at any major event in the world, which one would you choose and why?
I would have to choose Coachella. I love music festivals and music in general. Plus, I really want to visit California!

Favorite book, movie and food
Book: A Dog’s Purpose, Movie: The Blind Side, Food: Chocolate chip cookies and pizza!

Friends are visiting Boston for the first time. Where do you take them?
Lincoln in South Boston for lunch, Newbury Street for shopping and at night, the Seaport’s newest hot spot: The Grand.

Caroline Horseback RidingInvisibility or time-travel? If time-travel, tell us your first stop.
Time Travel—I think it’d be interesting to travel back to the time when my parents were growing up. They always say “Well, when I was your age…”, might as well check it out!

When you aren’t working, where could we find you?
The answer used to be horseback riding, it was my favorite sport growing up! Now, you could find me spending time with friends or family or at Btone in South Boston, I am obsessed!

Dogs, cats or other?
Dogs and horses.

And finally, give us one of your psych-up songs… please.
Anything by the Chainsmokers pre-2017.
