Caitlin DeFlaun

Admissions Coordinator, FL

Caitlin DeFlaun is a Connecticut native who has spent time in the past 10 years living in Richmond, VA, Chicago, IL and ultimately landed in South Florida two years ago. Caitlin received her Bachelor's Degree in Sociology, with a minor of Anthropology, from Miami University of Ohio in 2008. She went to school originally for Education but realized along the way it was in her best interest to broaden her scope into studying and working with others more closely. Her appreciation for studying other societies, patterns of social relationships, social interaction, and culture, stems from her love to travel. Caitlin went abroad for 6 months in the midst of continuing her studies in Australia, New Zealand and other islands in the Southern Hemisphere. Caitlin has worked with children and adults with Intellectual Disabilities over the course of many years; she has worked as a Special Ed. Para Educator, one-on-one with high school students and also worked as an Employment Specialist to help others achieve, train and maintain their jobs. Her daily goal is to do one thing better than she did the day before by helping others. She enjoys living near the beach, taking time to read, traveling, keeping in constant contact with friends and family located all over the country. Caitlin is excited to be a part of the New Direction's team and plans to continue to work in this field and further her education by going back to school for her Master's Degree in Psychology.
