Caitlin completed her Master’s Degree in Social Work at New York University, and then continued on to complete the Harvard Medical School Inter-Professional Palliative Care Fellowship in pediatric palliative care at Boston Children’s Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. She currently works full time at Riley Hospital for Children as the Pediatric Palliative Care Social Worker. Caitlin has had the opportunity to present regionally and nationally on such topics as childhood bereavement and advanced care planning with adolescents. Caitlin has a passion for working with children and their accompanying families in an effort to provide support and bridge communication gaps amidst managing difficult situations. Caitlin believes that it is an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to walk side by side with children and families as they cope through their grief journey. For all of these reasons, she is thrilled to be on board at Brooke’s Place to serve children and families. In her spare time, Caitlin enjoys yoga, running, volunteering, baking, and spending time outdoors with friends and family.
