CAITLIN LANIER – BIO

Caitlin Lanier is a writer and editor at the Idaho National Laboratory in Idaho Falls, Idaho. She graduated from The College of Idaho in 2007 with a degree in English Literature and Education. While in college, she was actively involved with The Men’s and Women’s Center, an organization aiding victims of emotional, sexual, and physical abuse. After graduation, Caitlin spent a year teaching English in Santiago, Chile. She is very excited to return to South America to represent Rotary Club in Buenos Aires, Argentina this spring. Currently, she is working toward becoming a 200 hour Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher (200 RYT) which aligns with her long-term interests of studying art and creative writing therapy. In particular, she is focused on healing individual and cultural trauma through creative expression and wants to better understand the cultural trauma resulting from the repressive dictatorships and human rights abuses in Argentina during the 1960s through the 1980s. After the month with Rotary Club in Buenos Aires, she plans to extend her time in South America to travel to Lurin, Peru. While there, she’ll be a volunteer coordinator of arts, crafts, and yoga at a center for girls who have been sexually abused. She plans to apply for Art Therapy Master’s programs in the winter of 2013. In her spare time, she likes to hike, rock climb, road bike, and crochet.
