The perfect combination of fun, interesting and slightly quirky, Caitlin has three essential roles at TG. First, she’s a social media coordinator. In addition to managing client accounts, she does a stellar job capturing TG’s personality on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
Second, she’s our resident photographer, regularly snapping shots for clients and hitting the streets for our People of Downtown Eugene project. We send her out to capture the humans, but she’s always on the lookout for cute canines, as well. I’m impressed with her knowledge of photography and her ability to capture a good image, even with something as simple as an iPhone camera.
Third, she’s our official party planner. Yet, I’m not sure how it actually happened. I once asked for help, and she volunteered. At some point, I stopped asking, and she just took it on. If you’ve ever attended a Friday at 4 (and if you haven’t, you should), the drinks and treats are her doing. In fact, you should come this Friday and enjoy peppermint White Russians and homemade gingerbread cookies as part of our holiday party.
Caitlin is our second, intern-turned permanent employee. She was Kelli Matthews’ trailing intern — when Kelli joined TG, so did Caitlin. At the time, Caitlin was finishing her senior year at the University of Oregon’s School of Journalism and Communication. It’s been fun to watch her student-to-professional progression.
I appreciate Caitlin’s joyous personality. She’s always smiling and quick to laugh. She’s energetic and always enthusiastic about the tasks before her. And she’s quite crafty. She worked with Cres to make our superhero dodgeball capes and partnered with Sarah to create our Super Bra entry for the Dandelion Flowers Bras for a Cure competition.
Oh, I almost forgot, there’s one more role Caitlin fills at TG — baker. She’s always bringing us luscious treats. And she seems to know all of the best places to eat around town. The next time you see her, ask her about Larry’s Cupcakes. Watch her reaction. You’ll enjoy it.
