A lover of the outdoors, she finds her solace in the intricate ecosystem and has lived in brackish wetlands and forested mountains across the Chesapeake watershed. After seeing significant changes to the landscape of Assateague Island, a favorite haunt, she left the corporate world and joined the Alliance in 2016.

When not at the office, Caitlyn enjoys solo camping trips and takes delight in cooking intricate meals for the pure pleasure of chef work and the beauty of food. She lives on a boat with her nebelung cat, Lida Rose Neil.
