Caitlin has been passionate about singing from a very young age. Growing up in Brampton, she was in every school choir that was available from elementary school until high school. Inevitably that led to a music degree, followed by a teaching degree to become an elementary school teacher.
When she is not busy with her kindergarten classroom, Caitlin is spending time with her family including two children who have done a combined total of more than thirty collections of Music Together.
