Caroline Cunningham - Interim CEO

Caroline’s nonprofit superpower allows her to see the future! She uses her power to envision a better world and inspire the people around her to take positive action. She helps organizations both small and large reach their goals, and now she’s come to the aid of Rock Creek Conservancy (even though her favorite park will always be the National Mall.) On a nice day, you might find her biking on one of Rock Creek’s many paths.
