About Our Founder
Caitlin graduated from Duquesne University, hoping to use her role as a teacher to make an impact and support underrepresented youth. However, she was frustrated as she came to realize current systems were working against her efforts.
She transitioned from teaching to working at external after-school programs, which further revealed how teens’ individual experiences shape their outlook on life, ultimately coming back to child development and counseling theory.
Determined to empower these youth, Caitlin co-founded Brookline Teen Outreach (BTO) with Diana Fischerkeller, founder of Compassionate Counseling, in 2015.
