Born in Boston and raised in Connecticut, Caitlin moved north to attend Bowdoin College. At Bowdoin, she double majored in Economics and Government, minored in French, and received high honors for her Government honors thesis. Outside of the classroom, Caitlin swam competitively for Bowdoin, mentored a local student throughout her time there, and organized the College’s annual Common Good Day her senior year. After graduating in 2011, Caitlin worked at Bowdoin’s McKeen Center for the Common Good for three years, helping connect students to community service opportunities. In 2014, Caitlin moved to Boston to attend the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), graduating in May 2016 with her Master in Public Policy. While at HKS, Caitlin was an editor for the Harvard Kennedy School Review and received a Dukakis Fellowship to work with the Vermont Agency of Education in the summer of 2015. She is currently a grant writer for a large Boston-based non-profit.
After discovering her love of tutoring during high school, Caitlin worked as a Writing Assistant with Bowdoin’s Writing Project as an undergraduate, tutored HKS students in statistics during the second year of her master’s program, and has helped friends refine their admissions essays for graduate programs. She loves helping others better understand difficult.
In her free time, Caitlin likes to explore Boston, read, spend time with friends (and their dogs!), run, and travel.
