Caitlin is a mother to three children – daughter Leilani and twin boys Hurley and Jhye. At her twins’ 12-week scan, Hurley was diagnosed with left-sided CDH. Hurley was operated on at four days of age by surgeon, Dr. Warrick Teague, and his team at The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne.
Caitlin joined CDH Australia as her and her family received a great deal of support throughout their CDH journey. Caitlin hopes to give back and help families going through the same diagnosis; wanting to ensure that no family faces CDH alone.
Outside of CDH, Caitlin works as a kindergarten educator. She lives a busy life with her crazy family who enjoy being outdoors, and spending time with their family and friends.
