Staff Highlight – Caitlin Yorio

,

Caitlyn Yorio from Verona, PA is our featured staff highlight this month. Caitlin started with our agency last November and serves on Team AmeriHealth for Allegheny county.

Caitlin is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Developmental Psychology. She lives in the Pittsburgh area with her friends and family all nearby. She has two nephews, Grayson (8) and Quinn (4) who are like her own. Caitlin has an older brother, Michael, and 2 younger sisters Ashley and Brittany.

Traveling and going to Steelers games are some of her favorite things to do and her favorite season is summer. Recently, Caitlin has been interested in cycling and pure barre fitness exercise.

When asked what her biggest goal in life is, she said it is to show that she has worked hard for everything that she has and has done. She hopes that includes a summer beach house of her own one day!

If she did not work here or in this field, Caitlin would love to be an Occupational Therapist for Early Intervention or own her own daycare for children with disabilities.

Her favorite thing about working at AUCP is the support from all of the staff. She says, “it’s such a good feeling to know that you have others who may have experienced the same situation and have some suggestions for you on how to get through it. Everyone is willing to help find resources.” The most challenging part of her position is remembering that she cannot solve everything for her participants.

Caitlin’s supervisors say that she is a joy to work with. “From day one, she was a perfect fit. She is friendly, very motivated, and eager to help out as many people as possible. Caitlin has a great personality and gets along very well with her peers and has built trusting relationships with her participants and their families. Caitlin is always willing to go the extra mile and then some.” They say that they are so fortunate to have her as part of their team.
