Caitlin, a native of Springfield Virginia, began her pastry career in New Orleans after attending Tulane University. She began working in the kitchen of a European-style pastisserie on a whim, and never looked back. After completing formal training at the French Pastry School in Chicago, she returned to Virginia and began working at 2941 under former pastry chef Anthony Chavez, first as a pastry cook, then as pastry sous chef. Caitlin took the position of pastry chef after the renovation of 2941 in early 2012. She is excited to combine her classic French training with the Mediterranean influence of the new restaurant concept. She was a James Beard semi-finalist in 2015.
