Caitlin Harrison

My name is Caitlin Harrison and I am a Certified Child Life Specialist at Chris Evert Children's Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Thanks to the Human Ecology Department I was able to achieve my goal of becoming a Child Life Specialist and was lucky enough to have many encouraging mentors throughout my journey.

Some advice for future child life specialists, never limit your options as to where you will end up. I never dreamed of living twelve hours from my family or hometown, but it has helped me to learn so much about myself personally and professionally. You never know which city you were chosen to make a difference in, so enjoy the challenges and the exciting journey!
