Kaitlyn McEowen, MT-BC is a December 2017 graduate from the University of Iowa in Music Therapy with an emphasis in Voice. She completed her music therapy internship with Music To Grow On in September 2018 and has remained with the team as a board certified music therapist ever since! Having had the chance to explore a diverse range of populations and settings, she has found great passion working with students in schools of a variety of backgrounds and needs. During internship, she found a new love for advocating music therapy in the school setting and has since presented to two school districts on the music therapy assessment process, implementing services and ideas for using music therapy for academic success. In Fall 2020, Kaitlyn took over the position of Assessment Music Therapist and has been able to develop new skills in understanding both how to best implement a music therapy assessment process in the school setting, but how to best express to other professionals the values of music therapy for academics!
