Nevertheless, they remained in touch. Most probably because of her interest in sports, the two got along very well.

Born to her parents, Pierre and Marlyn Beaudoin, Caroline grew up with her three siblings playing various sports, such as swimming, soccer, and running.

After graduating high school, she played field hockey for Stanford University’s team as a defender. 

She became one of the most decorated Stanford players by her senior year. In addition to becoming America East Player of the Year, Beaudoin became the co-captain and was named to various best teams.

Aside from having an excellent sports career at Stanford, Caroline was equally good at academics. While a student there, she worked as an intern at the NASA Langley Research Centre.

In addition, she was also an intern at Apex Learning in Seattle, Washington D.C. At the end of college, Beaudoin was Stanford’s client associate and marketing director of Technology and Communication.

Upon graduation, she did not embark on a professional field hockey career and chose a different career path.

Beaudoin started working as an associate at Breakline Education and worked her way from partner success manager to her current position as a director of customer success.
