Caroline lives in Montreal. Her primary role on expeditions is to bring back footage to make documentaries for the public. One of the latest tells the story of a team that traveled across an unexplored area of Antarctica for 30 days with no outside support. She also participated in the Pull of the North expedition, where she followed the Yukon River for more than two months and traveled across Alaska to meet with First Nations in the area.

In late May 2016 a team of 4 adventurers started a 3 month, 2000 mile canoe journey from the source of the Yukon River at Lake Bennett, Canada to its mouth at Emmonak at the Bering Sea, Alaska. Along the entirety of this wilderness expedition is the home of the Athapaskan first nation people who more than 10,000 years ago, crossing the Bering land bridge from Asia settled within Western Canada, Alaska and the Yukon River region.
