Caitlin is currently a graduate student at UAA pursuing a Master of Arts in Teaching for Secondary Education with an emphasis in English Language Arts. She has a Bachelor of Arts in English and Japanese Studies from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN. A born-and-raised Alaskan, Caitlin grew up in Wasilla and wrote for the Frontiersman newspaper full-time for almost 3 years after completing her undergraduate degree. She has experience coaching middle and high school age youth in cross-country skiing and running as well as soccer. Caitlin says her list of interests and hobbies could fill a full page, but writing fiction would always come out on top.
