Caitlin

+ BIO

Caitlin brings her love of play and parkour to Parkour Visions all the way from the East Coast. Over the past 10+ years she has worked in both private and public sector, founding parkour companies, leadership events, working with city governments to incorporate play initiatives, and building over 40 pop-up playgrounds along the way. She was drawn to PKV specifically because the missions is something that resonates with her deeply. She believes sport and play are integral to whole human health, and in the profound power of parkour to transform people.

In addition to her role at PKV, she founded and still directs the North American Women’s Parkour Gathering, an initiative developed to increase participation and access for women. She also created the Art of Retreat Parkour Conference, dedicated to best practice sharing and promoting communal learning at the leadership level for parkour foundations. Before that she co-founded and spearheaded the overall growth of The Movement Creative, an east coast movement-fusion company which taught parkour and movement to over 2,000 kids and adults a year.

She is currently serving as the inaugural Chair of the national governing body, The United States Parkour Association, and advocates for alternative athletics / parkour / play on international stages, and has spoken at and participated in events organized by TEDx, Bloomberg Philanthropies (CityLab), US Play Coalition, International Making Cities Livable Council, and the NY AIA.

She likes her book-cases color coordinated, her London Fogs extra foamy, and her training grounds cold and concrete
