This is Caitlin’s first year with the MN Vixen but she is no novice to the idea of tackling! Growing up with an older brother obsessed with sports allowed Caitlin the opportunity to play pick-up neighborhood football. Over the years she has been involved in various sports such as soccer and basketball. In high school, Caitlin joined the rugby club. She loved the physicality of the sport, and ended up playing for 8 years. Currently, by day Caitlin works as a research scientist at the University of Minnesota Stem Cell Institute and in her free time she enjoys throwing pots, doing yoga, hiking and camping. After finishing graduate school and moving to Minneapolis Caitlin is ecstatic to play her rookie year with the MN Vixen!
