Caitlyn Baikie is an Inuk from Nain, Nunatsiavut. Through a decade of work experience, Caitlyn has published peer reviewed articles on Arctic social and physical sciences, has presented at various National and International conferences, and managed education programs for Inuit youth on International ship based expeditions. Most recently, Caitlyn moved back to Nain to work for the Nunatsiavut Government after nearly ten years in the National Capitol Region.
In 2015, CBC named Caitlyn one of the top 5 Indigenous leaders under 30 to watch, and in 2017 Corporate Nights named her one of Canada's top 30 under 30 sustainability leaders.
In her spare time, Caitlyn likes to spend time outside hiking, biking, and hunting (when back home in Nunatsiavut!), being creative with various mediums, and giving back to her community. Caitlyn learned to sew sealskin from her mother and sister, just a couple of years ago and enjoys learning different techniques and patterns.
