Kaitlin earned her bachelor of science in psychology at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and her master of science in occupational therapy at the University of New England. While attending college, she worked at the La Crosse Area Family YMCA in the child care center, where she absolutely fell in love with working with kids. After college she worked as a camp counselor at an all-abilities summer camp and spent a year working with a variety of kids as a youth behavior specialist. Kaitlin is passionate about finding the just right challenge for all of her kiddos while remaining playful, patient, and purposeful. Kaitlin values and provides trauma informed care and inclusivity throughout her sessions. Kaitlin’s goal is to provide meaningful, holistic, and individualized care as an occupational therapist while collaborating with the entire team and family! Kaitlin completed an outpatient pediatric fieldwork rotation in which she gained experience in sensory integration, sensory processing, the SOS approach to feeding and eating, and aquatic therapy. She also experienced an outpatient neuro rotation and worked with a diverse range of clients. Outside of work Kaitlin loves to connect with friends and family over a good meal, explore all aspects of her community (especially nature and food), and go to concerts. Kaitlin has been a part of the CI team for over 2 years and is excited to meet new kiddos and families!
