Caroline Makepeace

Caroline Makepeace is the co-founder of This is Raleigh. She loves helping people unplug from the chaos, follow their bliss, travel more and create better memories. Caz is the flighty Libran of the family, bringing harmony to the family through crystals, meditation, and downward dogs (and the odd glass of wine at 5pm). It's all about the balance, right?
