Stop by soon to extend a warm welcome to our new office manager, Caitlin Maher.
The very capable Karen Sankey is moving on. She will be missed!
Caitlin was the practice and office manager at a local veterinarian practice for the past four years so she brings a wealth of experience plus a big smile to her new position.
We are all excited to have her at BeWell!
Caitlin is our Office Administrator. She is passionate about wellness and helping others. Prior to working at BeWell she was Practice Manager at a local veterinarian’s office and before that worked at Pennsylvania State University helping support international students via programming and counseling. Through her work in the international office she cultivated an appreciation for other cultures and a holistic approach to life. While at Penn State she was Chair of the Diversity Committee which provided staff members with training information on how to better serve diverse populations on campus. As part of this she is a trained LGBTQ Ally.
She continues to volunteer at Global Connections—a nonprofit organization whose goal is to bridge the gap between the State College community and the international population at Penn State. She helped organize events such as Women’s International Night, International Children’s Festival and International Potluck lunches. These valuable experiences taught her how to cook popular worldwide cuisine.
When not working or cuddling her pets, she is watching films and running. She has completed one full marathon and several half marathons. Running has helped teach her the value of proper nutritional fuel and the power of the mind-body connection.
She graduated from the State University of New York at Geneseo with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a minor in English. Her concentration was on the Sociology of Medicine and her thesis research was centered on identity formation in individuals with eating disorders. While at college, she co-founded a student organization entitled Women of Worth (or W.O.W.) which helped to empower female students on campus and was a member of the Active Minds club which worked to eliminate stigmas surrounding mental health. She moved to the area in 2012 with her partner, a lecturer at the University.
