Caitlin Chin

I am an MBA student at Vanderbilt University Owen Graduate School of Management concentrating in Healthcare and Operations & Analytics. Prior to moving to Nashville, I spent the last 12 years in Philadelphia. I studied Health and Societies at the University of Pennsylvania. During my junior year, I started volunteering with a non-profit organization called Back on My Feet, which helps people who are experiencing homelessness through running. I absolutely loved the empowerment that our members felt being a part of a team while running through the streets of Philly. I realized that things as simple as human connection and physical confidence have the ability to manifest confidence in other areas of a person’s life. I took a full-time job with Back on My Feet after graduation and then went back to Penn for my Masters in Social Work.

During my MSW program, I interned in a prison and a hospital, which is where I spent the next five years of my career working as a medical social worker. It was during this time that I realized that there is often a disconnect between the work that is done on the ground level and the decisions that are made at a management level. For me, the TFC is the perfect bridge between these two worlds, connecting business-minded people to social impact initiatives. I’m excited to use this opportunity to learn more about the organizations within the city and to connect with the Nashville community.
