Caitlin Wade


Grant Development Assistant

Caitlin is a recent graduate of Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro where she received a Bachelor of Arts in English. While there, she took on leadership roles in Sigma Alpha Iota, International Music Fraternity, as Music Director and Editor for two years. With a degree in hand, Caitlin was unsure which career direction she would pursue, but that all changed when she discovered the AmeriCorps VISTA Program.

Serving as a VISTA for a year allowed Caitlin to work closely with an area nonprofit where she honed many valuable skills. Most importantly, however, was her introduction to grant writing. As she wrote grant proposals over the course of her stint as a VISTA, Caitlin fell in love with it! But as dedicated to grant development as Caitlin is, work is not all she’s about. When she isn’t working, she’s busy writing articles for her blog or binging cooking shows…while her pots and pans collect dust in the kitchen!
