Hi, I’m Caroline Coughlin. I was born and raised in Evansville. I went to Mater Dei and received my nursing degree from USI in 2013 followed by my Masters in 2019. I work as a nurse practitioner in oncology. I moved back to Evansville after several years of travel and am thankful for the opportunity to serve the local community’s healthcare needs.
