Caitlin Huỳnh joins NAKASEC VA as the Vietnamese Outreach Specialist. She is a first-generation Vietnamese American who was born in Tiểu Cần, Việt Nam. Currently, Caitlin is based in Northern Virginia. In addition to English, she is fluent in French and Vietnamese.

As a former researcher with the East-West Center in Washington, she supported U.S.- Indo-Pacific public diplomatic efforts. Most recently, she supported clinical trials by coordinating and processing life sciences translation requests.

Through her previous employment, she rediscovered a passion for language justice as it relates to healthcare access and information. As a result of her immigrant experience helping her parents navigate multiple government bureaucracies to receive unemployment assistance and healthcare, she is passionate about worker’s rights and universal healthcare coverage. 

In Caitlin’s free time, you can find her spoiling her cat, hiking, working out, and doing photo walks.
