Bayside with Kaitlyn Cedergren


Meet Kaitlyn, Save The Bay’s development and volunteer associate!


A weekend hike!

Why and when did you get involved with Save The Bay?
I got involved in 2016 as the Events intern for the summer. I went to Johnson and Wales University and was excited to get involved in a local nonprofit. Save The Bay was in a great location and when I asked about the organization everyone had good things to say.

What is your favorite place/spot on Narragansett Bay?
The Save The Bay Center! Not only does it have a great view, but it is the perfect place to bring my dog and walk along the coast, too. 

What’s a favorite project you’ve worked on, or highlight from your Save The Bay experience thus far?
My favorite project is the Save The Bay Swim. It is a lot of work each year but to get to the end and hear how much fun everyone had makes the work worth it.

What are you excited to be working on right now?
I am always excited to work on intern applications and getting more volunteers involved in the organization.

Do you have any weird talents?
I love knitting or crocheting, doing things with my hands.

What do you like to do outside of work?
Hanging out with my dog or getting outside and taking pictures. Most weekends are spent visiting family or when it’s nice out, I like going for hikes.

How do you enjoy the Bay?
I love walking along the many beaches that the Bay has and just enjoying the sights, sounds, and smells of the beach.

Last book you read? Last Netflix series you binged?
Show: Good Trouble
Book: Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari

*Please note:  Be sure to access the Johnson & Wales University Harborside Campus through the main entrance on Harborside Blvd. Your GPS may suggest taking Ernest Street to JWU’s Shipyard Street entrance, but that route requires a key card for entry.  

From Route I-95 North or South, take Exit 18 (Thurbers Avenue). Head downhill on Thurbers Avenue to US Route 1A (Allens Avenue). Turn right onto Allens Ave. Continue southbound on Allens Ave. into Cranston, where Allens Ave. becomes Narragansett Blvd. Turn left onto Harborside Blvd. at the traffic light by the Shell gas station. Follow Harborside Blvd. through the Johnson & Wales Harborside Campus. At the end of Harborside Blvd., turn right onto Save The Bay Drive. Save The Bay Drive becomes a circular, one-way roadway as you approach the Bay Center. Parking is available in four guest lots after you pass the main building. Enter the building through the main entrance.
