Caitlin is a jack-of-all-trades at Finish Line, working both at the front desk and as a physical therapy aide. She is a Level I USAT-certified triathlon coach and has been part of the Empire Triathlon Club coaching staff since 2015. Additionally, she holds a Certification in Applied Functional Science from the Gray Institute. She has worked at FLPT since 2014.
Coming from a swimming and cross country running background, Caitlin dove (pun intended) into the sport of triathlon at the age of 14 (after too many running injuries) and has since completed 10 marathons, 2 ultra-marathons, 8 half Ironman and two full Ironman-distance triathlons (her favorite distance). After a bike accident in 2013, Caitlin made a career change towards promoting health, fitness and mobility, and helping others to improve the quality of their lives.
Caitlin is currently applying to Doctor of Physical Therapy programs. When she’s not swimming, biking or running, she enjoys singing (constantly), watching cute puppy videos and ice climbing (in the winter).
