Caitlin attended Post University where she earned her degree in Equestrian Studies. She will always be remembered for her amazing spirit and for her love of animals. As an accomplished rider, she had a particular passion for horses.

Caitlin was a sweet and loving soul who left this earth too soon. She had an undying passion for adventure and excitement. She loved deeply with a heart big enough for everybody she met along her journey. She was loved just as much.

An outdoor memorial service will be held on Sunday, May 16th at 2pm at the First Congregational Church, 6 Kirby Road in Washington, CT. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made in her name to H.O.R.S.E. of CT, an equestrian rescue facility in Washington.

Caitlin and I were friends when she worked at Enterprise in AZ. She worked on my team and shared a lot of laughs together. We gravitated towards her positive energy and passion for cars. I learned she had some really cool cars and we spoke often about our stories of getting into trouble. A few times we took out rental cars and drove absolutely insane. I'll always remember the time we took a Pontiac GXP and did donuts in a random parking lot. We laughed so hard, brought the car back and pretended nothing happened. RIP Caitlin. I'll miss our deep talks and smiles.

I only knew Caitlin while we went to school together at Rumsey. my memories are only of smiles and laughing and she was always a positive influence. Not sure why but whenever I hear songs by the band No Doubt I think of her. Now those songs will have a little bit of a bitter note.

So very sorry for your loss.
