Kaitlyn was drawn to SCFG because of her strong personal connection to the experiences of SCFG's participants. As a first-generation, low-income student from East Cambridge, Kaitlyn’s potential as a scientist was discovered and nurtured by mentors in free, hands-on molecular biology programs offered by local outreach organizations and the Biogen Community Lab. Today, Kaitlyn is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Genetics department at Harvard Medical School, where she focuses on reproductive biology through the lens of development and evolution. She received a PhD in Molecular, Cellular, and Organismal Biology from UMass Boston, and a BA in Biology from Smith College. She has been involved with SCFG as a mentor and member of the Development committee since 2021, and seeks to provide her community with the same opportunities and mentorship that opened her pathway to STEM.
