Caitlin earned a B.A. in Sociology with a concentration in Human Services at Colorado Mesa University, and then attended the Institute for Public Policy Studies at the University of Denver. She went on to work as the Public Policy Coordinator at the CO-WY chapter of the National MS Society and then as a Policy Analyst for the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing. Much of her work in health policy has centered around private health insurance reforms, including a focus on plan benefit design for prescription drugs. In her work as CCHI’s policy manager she is committed to continue learning about how the health system works, and advocating for solutions that make health care truly accessible and affordable for all Coloradans. A native of Grand Junction, Colorado, Caitlin was a ski racer and competitive swimmer, and now stays active by hiking all over Colorado with her trusty dog companion, Mabel.
