Caroline – Downtown

Hi there, my name is Caroline Eleanor, but my friends call me “C”! I am both a lifelong New Yorker and a lifelong animal lover; I am originally from the Hudson Valley where I grew up with three cats. When I was in middle school, I convinced my then-reluctant parents to get our first dog, Anderson, via the classic power-point presentation (and ample begging). After my parents too fell in love with dogs, they recently welcomed our newest furry family member, Bubba (who I endearingly refer to as “Louie”).

In 2019, I moved to NYC to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology. I am now a graduate student at Columbia University as an M.S. candidate in Sustainability Management. My main purpose and passion in life is to protect and care for our planet, along with its furry inhabitants! Last summer, I volunteered at a small farm in Italy where I cared for chickens, ducks, bunnies, sheep, and goats. In my free time, I also enjoy hiking and have been on trails across the U.S. I am the happiest outside, connecting with humans and animals – whether that’s on a farm in rural Tuscany or in the Big Apple! This is why I am so happy to join the RuffCity family. I believe that a walk is a chance to re-center and be in the present moment with your pup while having fun along the way. My mission is to help make your pup’s walk a highlight of their day too!
