Caitlin has lived in Missoula for ten years, working as the community engagement coordinator for the Humane Society of Missoula, as well as a wildlife field researcher, studying everything from elk to raptors. She is working on her MS in Biology with a focus on community engagement. Caitlin is inspired by EPI's mission and is excited to engage students and teachers in field-based programs revolving around hands-on science, conservation, and sustainable living. She lives for hiking and being outside in the woods, whether camping, backpacking, or watching birds. She and her son have a dog, a cat, a very old rabbit, and are just beginning to explore geocaching.
