Hometown: Born and raised in Milford, Conn.; recently moved to the Black Rock section of Bridgeport, right near the Fairfield line.
Birthday: January 4
Caitlin Mazzola recently graduated magna cum laude from the University of Connecticut with a B.A. in journalism and communication. During her time at UConn, she wrote for UConn's student newspaper, The Daily Campus, and served as the Focus Editor from May 2010 to May 2011.
During her last semester at UConn, Caitlin took part in an investigative project that looked into the state's resources for adults with autism. The end result, State of the Spectrum, is a website and 10-page print publication, the latter of which she created, designed and published for the class.
Caitlin has reported community news throughout her college years. She covered Milford for The Milford Mirror and The New Haven Register and most recently covered town government for Milford Patch. In the fall of 2010, Caitlin covered the town of Willington for The Manchester Journal Inquirer, reporting everything from people-of-the-town features to municipal elections and hotly contested teacher contracts.
Caitlin now looks forward to taking a part in this emerging new wave of online journalism. As she learned in school, the field is an ever-changing one, and we must be ahead of the curve to succeed.
In her free time, Caitlin enjoys reading, cooking/baking, following the Oscars race (she makes it a point to see every best picture nominee each year), and rooting for her lifelong loves and No. 1 heartbreakers, the Boston Red Sox.
