Caroline Fernandez

Caroline is a senior in the Questrom School of Business, studying Marketing and International Business. An active follower of Terrier Hockey, Caroline has spent the last three years working for the BHB and can’t wait to continue for her last year at BU.

Although she’s a New Yorker, Caroline was born in Boston and leaves her loyalties with the state of Massachusetts. To her family’s dismay, she chooses Boston over any of the professional New York sports teams. 

Caroline is so excited to get back into the press box to cover the 2022-23 season and welcome in a new era of Terrier Hockey with the Boston Hockey Blog.
