If Caileigh was not working in campus recreation she would be a soccer coach and a teacher. 

In her free time she loves doing anything outdoors, traveling, cooking and experiencing new cultures. After obtaining her Masters, she plans on traveling abroad and teaching for a bit to experience education in different countries and experience new cultures and styles of teaching.
