I have been thrilled to have Caitlin Crawshaw write for the University of Lethbridge. Over the last year, she has written primarily for our research publication, FIAT, as well as various other institutional and faculty publications. I am amazed by Caitlin’s ability to take complex research and turn into a conversational and engaging article. She’s an exceptional writer. Her work is on time, beautifully polished and thoroughly fact-checked. In a word, she is an editor’s ‘dream.’

When it comes to creativity, thinking outside of the box and delivering a great story, Caitlin sets the bar every time. She has an uncanny ability to translate intricate scientific discoveries into language we can all understand – which is no simple feat. Being able to interview and get to the root of the story is her trademark. Her attention to detail, making sure she understands the direction of the stories and then securing the materials required to meet that criteria, alongside her timeliness and the fact that her writing style appeals to our audience, are all factors I rely on and why I look to her first when a project arises.
