Caitlin Senni

Caitlin is an Ada Comstock scholar at Smith College. There, she studies psychology and education in a developmental psychology lab that focuses primarily on language. After Smith, she plans to move onto a Ph. D program in psycholinguistics and cognition.

Caitlin’s daughter Simone joined the toddler program at Hilltop in 2016. They have since found their place in the community which now feels like home to them. Caitlin has both worked and volunteered at Hilltop and continues her work through trusteeship. She hopes to continue the work of the Equity and Anti-Bias workgroup, in terms of growing the community’s diversity and inclusivity, and by prioritizing these ideals in our next strategic plan.

Caitlin and Simone live in Saxtons River, Vermont. There, she and Simone enjoy having goofy dance-offs, reading together until their discarded book pile topples over, and writing chalk letters to each other in the driveway.
