Born and raised in Philadelphia, Cait found herself very interested in Latin American culture in high school where she studied Spanish literature with a Honduran nun as her teacher. Later in college at the University of Pennsylvania, she decided to pursue her love for all things Latin American, choosing to study abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This trip made her realize that an immense opportunity exists for passionate locals to share their cultures with travelers; she felt compelled to help bring other people to experience all the flavor of Latin America. After graduating, Cait immediately moved to Buenos Aires to make LocalAventura a reality. She's lived in Brazil, Mexico, Chile, and Argentina; in her free time, Cait loves watching films and writing so she remembers all of the crazy adventures she’s had while working on LocalAventura.
