Conversations With Caitlyn

Wednesday, October 16, 6:30 pm

At the age of 12, Caitlin was exposed to drugs and over the ensuing seven years found herself becoming fully addicted. A 2006 graduate of Shawano High School, Caitlin suffered the paradox of being class president, exceling in music and sports, and getting straight A’s all while being a slave to addiction. Her life began to change; however, when shortly after high school she was given the opportunity to go to a treatment center. Caitlin faced setbacks during her recovery, including the development of an eating disorder. Through these experiences, however, there was a constant desire to serve a greater purpose that pushed her on.

Now six years after leaving her first treatment center, Caitlin is pursuing a degree in public health at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI. She continues to attend weekly 12-step meetings and has sought out resources both on campus and in the community to help her succeed. She is active in the community and has volunteered as a patient advocate at Appleton Medical Center, a patient companion with AseraCare Hospice, an English as a Second Language tutor with the local literacy council, and a public speaker at Shawano High School on the effects of drugs, alcohol, and eating disorders.

This event is open to the public. 7th and 8th grade confirmation students are required to attend.
