Caroline Rosen

When Caroline Nabors Rosen graduated from Tulane University shortly after Hurricane Katrina, she knew she couldn’t stay away from her beloved city of New Orleans for long. She was right. In 2015, she came back to the Crescent City as the Executive Director of famed New Orleans Chef John Besh's Foundation. Today Caroline oversees a program, Chefs Move, that sends trained minority candidates from New Orleans to culinary school in New York City and in Northern California. She also manages a “Milk Money” micro-loan program that helps food producers within 200 miles of New Orleans grow their business and become valued suppliers for grocery stores and restaurants in South Louisiana.
