CAROLYN attributes her devotion to walking tours to her husband, who showed her the sites of his hometown on foot when she arrived to earn an M.F.A. in Acting from The Catholic University of America. She studied English and Art History as an undergraduate. A New England native, when she craves a taste of her home turf she heads to A. Litteri, Inc., an Italian market in Northeast D.C. The person making history in D.C. whom she most admires is Seth Goldman, founder of beverage company Honest Tea. Carolyn serves on the board of The Welders, a Playwrights’ Collective. She is the founder of Washington Walks.
