Hi there! My name is Caroline Porch. I grew up in Knoxville, TN. I graduated with 66 others from a small Christian school in 2017. That fall, I moved to Johnson City to start my college career at ETSU. I started out with a nursing degree, but after going through a couple semesters of nursing school, I quickly realized it was not what I was meant to do. I just graduated in May 2021 with my B.S. in Human Services and a minor in Family Studies.

I recently married my best friend in November 2020! We have one dog, or as we like to call him, a horse. Our dog, Yogi, is a German Shepherd/Anatolian Shepherd mix. I love to travel, especially internationally. My favorite place I’ve been so far would probably be Kenya or Egypt. I love to experience new cultures outside of my own! I also love to paint and go thrifting/antique shopping. And if you see me, I’m most likely holding a cup of coffee.

I truly value intentional connections with people. My goal is to make every student feel valued, heard, and cared for. I’m so excited to start this path as a NiswongerCARE Advisor!
