Bellingham Athletic Club

December Member of the Month

Kaitlin Schanken has been a member of BAC since June of 2018. Kaitlin enjoys taking group classes, small personal training groups, and is an avid runner.

Kaitlin was born in Alaska, raised in Montana, and moved to Bellingham in 2006 from NYC where she completed a program of study at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. She has a BS from Western in Environmental Science and minors in GIS and History. Kaitlin has completed a term of service with Americorps and worked for Fish and Wildlife in Skagit County doing salmon/trout surveys and data entry. She took time off when Rosemary was born and loved being a stay-at-home parent so much that she decided to do it full time. She is also the coordinator for the Cordata Community Garden and tries to stay active within the greater Bellingham community.

Kaitlin has two amazing kids (Arabella (10), Rosemary (2)), an awesome partner in crime, two kitties, and a whack-a-do puppy named Saoirse. For fun, Kaitlin likes to run races, coach, read, play with her kiddos and her pooch, hike, garden, cook, and bake.

Thank you for your dedication to BAC, we love having you and the girls around the club!
