Caroline Barnes

Project Manager

Having trained in Interior Architecture, Caroline started her career as a commercial interior designer working in the retail, leisure and office sectors for clients including the Welsh Assembly Government and The Crown Estate. A move to Somerset led to a role with Somerset County Council working on the Building Schools for the Future Programme, during which time she worked closely with Futures for Somerset and developed a love of working with schools. Following further work in project and programme management at the County Council, Caroline joined the Futures team in November 2015.

Outside of work, Caroline is very slowly renovating her cottage which has involved learning to work hands on with lime and stone, and how not to panic when your house appears to be falling down. She is slightly obsessed with her small flock of chickens and ducks, and when not tackling the house renovations, loves throwing the paddle boards and kayaks in the back of the camper van and heading off to the coast.
