Meet the new health reporter

Hi, I’m Caitlin Kerfin, the new health/religion reporter here at the York Daily Record. I come to York from a land far, far away called Columbia, Missouri where I graduated from the University of Missouri in journalism and religious studies. Before that, I grew up in a southwest suburb of Chicago where I ate deep dish pizza, rooted for the incredible, awe-inspiring Cubs and acquired the very distinct accent that will likely be stuck forever.

I love trying new things to stay healthy and fit, and I hope that is reflected in the work I’ll be doing. Growing up I did Irish dance, and now I do yoga and run whenever I can. In fact, I just completed my first half marathon in Disney World this past weekend.
