Here's What Former DCC Caroline Sundvold Has Been Up To Since 'America's Sweethearts'

If you’ve suddenly become an expert in the world of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleading, you’re in good company. Netflix’s latest docuseries, America’s Sweethearts: Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, is now streaming, taking fans behind the scenes of one of the most iconic squads in the NFL.

The stakes couldn’t be higher: No matter how seasoned the girls are, they must audition every year to land one of the 36 spots on the football field. And after years on the team, many of the ladies retire at a young age, either due to personal choice or injuries.

One veteran featured in the documentary is Caroline Sundvold. She’s a DCC veteran who helped her younger sister, Anna Kate, through the audition process for the 2024 season, and underwent two surgeries after she retired. Here’s everything you need to know about her.

She’s from Missouri and has been dancing since she was three years old.

Caroline is from Missouri and fell in love with dance when she was three years old, per The Cinemaholic. She danced throughout high school at her local studio and eventually for the University of Missouri Golden Girls.

She graduated from the University of Missouri in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, according to her LinkedIn.

She’s the older sister of Anna Kate.

Anna Kate Sundvold, who is featured in the doc and made the team, is Caroline’s younger sister. The two lived together—even sharing a bed—throughout the season.

"We’ve had a few arguments, but for the most part, it was a blessing for me that as I was leaving DCC, she was coming in," Caroline told cameras, per Netflix's Tudum. "It sort of lightened the blow a bit, so I didn’t feel so isolated from everything I’d been around for the last five years."

And these sisters aren't the only athletes in their family. Their father, Jon Sundvold, was a basketball player, and played for the Seattle SuperSonics, San Antonio Spurs, and Miami Heat, per a bio on his alma mater’s website.

She joined the DCC in 2018 and retired in 2023 due to injury.

Caroline joined the squad in 2018 and had to retire in 2023 because of injuries. She was even awarded the 2023 Veteran of the Year Award and the 2019 Rookie of the Year Award during her time on the squad, per her LinkedIn.

During her last year on the team, she needed hip reconstruction surgery, but postponed so she could continue to support the team until the Cowboys played their final game, per The Cinemaholic. She also underwent a surgery on her left foot, forcing her to wear a boot while she helped her sister prepare for auditions.

Where is Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Caroline now?

Caroline is now an account manager for medical equipment manufacturer Stryker, according to her LinkedIn. During her time as a Cowboys cheerleader, she also worked as a personal assistant.

In 2023, she received a certificate in mastering sales from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management.

In her personal life, Caroline is thriving, too. She's still hanging with DCCs, including her sister!

Love to see it, Caroline!
