Cailin first became acquainted with acupuncture’s effectiveness in 2008 during an apprenticeship at a birth clinic in Indonesia. Health, culture, and wellness interests continued throughout her undergrad, including conducting maternal health research in the Himalayas. Now a skilled acupuncturist, Cailin received her Master of Science in Acupuncture from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Her education, including a bachelor’s degree in Medical Anthropology from Marlboro College, continues to inspire her early interest in cross-cultural health approaches, especially around childbirth and postpartum recovery. Cailin is also a certified postpartum doula through the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association (CAPPA).
Cailin grew up in northern Italy and Colorado’s foothills and is a newbie to Madison—but excited to make Madison her home! When outside the clinic, Cailin creates a variety of art, enjoys time in natural settings, and occasionally sings aloud when she thinks no one may be listening.
