Caitlin Mayden, CTRS

Recreational Therapist

Hello, my name is Caitlin! I am originally from Alton, Illinois which is right outside St. Louis, Missouri. I am an August 2017 graduate from Indiana State University with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Recreation and Sport Management with a concentration in Recreation Therapy and a Certification in Gerontology. I completed my internship at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in Marion, Indiana. I have experience with a wide verity of different populations and ages. During my undergrad I have had multiple opportunities to gain experience in Recreation Therapy in after school programs, Girls on the Run, adult day care/assisted living and lifeguarding/swimming lessons. I am excited to work for Meaningful Day Services (MDS) because I believe that the body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter, and the spirit heals with joy, through Recreation Therapy!
