Caitlin discovered travel relatively late in life—she didn't take her first international trip until studying abroad in Ireland at age 18. But she has more than made up for lost time since then, going on adventures in the Peruvian Andes, Finnish Lapland, Iceland, and Yellowstone National Park in the dead of winter (to name a few). Most of her professional writing took place at Condé Nast Traveler, where she launched a blogger program in 2014 and continued on as a contributing editor for the next six years. She now is a full-time freelancer covering all things travel, film, and fashion.

Caitlin's work has appeared in several digital publications, including Condé Nast Traveler, Architectural Digest, AFAR, Travelzoo, MTV News, and Expedia. She loves writing about pretty much everything, but some of her favorite beats include solo travel, boutique hotels, national parks, and all things creepy. (If you need a haunted hotel or horror movie recommendation, she's your girl.) She currently lives in Kansas City, busily eating BBQ and pretending to care about sports.


Caitlin graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.A. in English and a minor in film studies. During her time there, she studied abroad in Dublin with the Irish literature department.
