The FST Team
Caitlin Kelley. FST Program Supervisor
Caitlin completed her BA at McGill University with a major in psychology and minors in behavioral science and world religion. During her undergrad she was involved in research projects related to adolescent psychology, social psychiatry, and social studies of medicine. She went on to complete her MA in Applied Health Science at Brock University, specializing in community health in the Behavioral Health Sciences Research Lab. Her master’s thesis focused on the relationship between markers of psychological wellbeing and physical activity outdoors. Her research interests have focused on how research can be used to help build community and facilitate social change. Caitlin has been involved in peer support since 2011 where she first was introduced to peer work during her post-secondary studies. At every institution she has attended, she has been involved in peer work as both a peer support partner and as an advocate for peer work. A dedication to peer work, foundational to the mission of HopeWorx, is what excited Caitlin about joining HopeWorx. Caitlin values the opportunity she’s been afforded at HopeWorx to blend her lived experience with her own mental health and passion for research. Prior to joining the Family Satisfaction Team (FST), she was a Research Specialist for the same team which was housed within another agency until July 2021 when the FST contract was awarded to HopeWorx. Caitlin is committed to empowering and connecting families within Montgomery County by amplifying their voice to a range of stakeholders within the community. In her spare time, Caitlin enjoys hiking, bird watching, and creative writing.
