Kaitlyn joined the STEPS team in 2018. She grew up in sunny California and moved to Seattle to attend college at the University of Washington. She recently graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences. Before joining STEPS, Kaitlyn spent a year with Jumpstart at UW where she focused on literacy development for preschoolers and ran a preschool classroom twice a week. She also worked as an after school teacher at a Seattle elementary school where she got to meet lots of amazing kids and teachers!
In the future, she hopes to attend graduate school and become a Speech Language Pathologist who works with kids with hearing loss. In her free time, she likes to read, cook, spend time with friends, and cuddle her cat.
