Caitlin Crowley grew up in Michigan and attended Walled Lake Northern High School, where she played Varsity basketball, track, and soccer. She continued her education at Grand Valley State University where she obtained her Bachelor's in Social Work with a minor in Psychology. During that time, she had an internship at the Ottawa County Juvenile Assessment Center where she discovered her passion for working with youth, specifically understanding their past traumas and how it led to their actions. After graduating with a BSW, she attended the University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work, graduating with a Master's of Social Work with an emphasis in Organization, Leadership, and Public Policy. While at the University of Denver, Caitlin had two internships, one at the Jefferson County Juvenile Assessment Center and the other at the CO State Capitol working with State Representative Gonzales-Gutierrez. Following graduation, she landed a job as the Restorative Practice Coordinator at an elementary school within the Denver Public School System. Caitlin will be moving back to Michigan in June where she hopes to continue her restorative work in the school system.
