Caitlin Anderson

Caitlin Anderson is graduating from Occidental College in May 2009 with a Geology major and a minor in Theater. She loves that she gets to use both her left and right brain by studying the sciences by day and singing in the Glee Clubs and school musicals by night.

She eventually hopes to combine her love of teaching, performing arts, and science into some incredible dream job, which perhaps has yet to be created.
