Charlotte originally immigrated with her family from Denmark to the United States at age 11.  She received her undergraduate degree from New York University in Economics and worked with American Express Bank in the Correspondent Banking Department in New York for three years. Charlotte then moved to England to work for ISS World, a Danish multinational company.  Upon her return to the U.S., she pursued an M.Ed. at the University of Pennsylvania and spent ten years developing curriculum and teaching children pre-K-6.  In 2007, she moved into the educational publishing and EdTech start up space, conducting business development and market research in the area of higher education. After a career of working primarily in the private sector, she moved into the public sector in January 2018, as Program Coordinator for the National Science Foundation grant-funded interdisciplinary training program for Ph.D. students at UConn. Her professional objective is to move into a post-secondary education administrator position upon completion of the MPA Fellows Program.
