She is an engaging and passionate LGBTQ professional who helps organizations advance to the next level of diversity and inclusion goals through LGBTQ and social justice advocacy, education, and support. Her current focus includes institutional policy and cultural change for transgender inclusion, capacity building for LGBTQ support services, development of resources through community partnerships and fundraising, increased visibility of diversity support through marketing and collaboration, meeting the needs of the LGBTQ community, and outreach-based education for organizational cultural change. At the UNF LGBT Resource Center, she leads program development, educational initiatives, advocacy and policy updates, community outreach, and the development and implementation of the Center’s annual goals.


Kaitlin has experience developing initiatives, programs, and campaigns in LGBTQ advocacy, transgender inclusion, feminist leadership development, reproductive justice, and mentoring with a focus on young professionals and college students.

Kaitlin’s professional practice is guided by an inclusive and intentional approach, centered on empowerment and community building. Her work is influenced by her training in feminist, queer, and gender theories, critical cultural theory, and communications/rhetorical studies. That practice has been informed by experience in public policy campaigns and advocacy, public relations, education and training, nonprofit service and leadership, direct service, and direct action. Key focus areas are gender identity/expression, sexuality, transgender inclusion, community organizing, reproductive health, diversity education and training, and intersectionality.


Prior to joining UNF, Kaitlin held professional positions at the University of Rochester’s Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender and Women’s Studies, Flower City Habitat for Humanity, and Planned Parenthood of Western and Central New York. She earned a Masters of Educational Leadership with a concentration in Higher Education Administration and a Certificate in Nonprofit Management from the University of North Florida in 2016 and a Bachelors of Arts in Communication and Rhetoric with a minor in Gender and Women’s Studies from Nazareth College in 2010.
