It’s Not What You Think is a storytelling series that will explore the unexpected twists and turns that life takes— emphasizing that our lives rarely (if ever) progress as a linear series of met goals. It’s Not What You Think will bring together members of the college community around stories of the unanticipated ways that life unfolds, including the failures, defeats, tragedies, and radical life changes. Caitlin Myers will share her story of living through the grief of the sudden loss of her partner. Her story highlights her tremendous resilience in the wake of tragedy.

Caitlin Myers joined the Middlebury economics department in 2005. She teaches courses in urban economics and empirical methodologies, and enthusiastically supervises a senior research workshop most spring semesters. Caitlin’s research intersects issues related to gender, race and the economy. Her current projects estimate how reproductive policies influence social and economic outcomes. Caitlin grew up in Burnsville, West Virginia and LaGrange, Georgia.
