Born and raised in Oklahoma, Caitlin gained an appreciation for science and nature from a young age. She attended Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK where she earned her B.S. in Wildlife Ecology & Management. During her time at Oklahoma State, Caitlin conducted research on the changing hibernation patterns of black bears in southeastern Oklahoma. Most recently, she worked as a capture technician for the Oklahoma Black Bear Project, trapping bears to be fitted with GPS collars in order to track movement data. In Caitlin’s free time you can find her drawing, hiking, or birding. She is so excited to share her love of science, nature, and wildlife with others!
