Caitlin M. Powell
Raised with an awareness of and passion for the environment, Caitlin began cutting out green building articles for her mother as a little girl. It was only natural to align her passions with her education, so she is pursuing her B.S. in Construction Management at Colorado State University and plans to earn her Master’s in Design Science. Caitlin is Chair of Emerging Green Builders of Northern Colorado, a coalition of students and young professionals intent on promoting the integration of future leaders into the green building movement. Caitlin’s passions include deconstruction, construction waste management, community connectivity and local food production.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
