Caitlin Barritt, PT, DPT, OCS directorTreating clinics: BoulderCaitlin was born and raised in Vermont. At 13 years old she decided she wanted to be a physical therapist when she grew up. And a short 10 years later – that’s what she would become. Caitlin went to undergraduate and PT school at Simmons College in Boston, graduating in 2001. She drove out west and settled in Boulder and has been here happily ever since.
Outside the clinic, Caitlin spends much of her time with her two young children, teaching them to be good bikers and hikers. She rises early to get in her kickboxing and resistance training before anyone else is awake!
