Portland Center Stage at The Armory
Director of HR, Equity & Inclusion

Caitlin was inspired to go to law school during the 2004 election season, and finally found her way to human resources after practicing law for several years. After a short career in private practice and as in-house counsel, Caitlin figured out that her true passion is creating happy and inclusive workplaces. Caitlin joined Portland Center Stage at The Armory as HR Manager three years ago and became Director of HR, Equity and Inclusion in 2017. Her current role allows her to shape the organization’s people-related processes with a strong focus on equity, diversity, and inclusion. Outside of the office, Caitlin occasionally takes on pro bono immigration work and enthusiastically connects her volunteer advocacy with The Armory’s mission of equity and inclusion. Caitlin studied theater at New York University, journalism at the University of Oregon, and law at Lewis & Clark Law School.
