Growing up in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts assured that Kaitlyn would be a true New England girl. She is a die hard New England sports fan, lover of all things visual, and local fashion activist working to bring more fashion to the Berkshires.
Her creativity emerged at a young age which was inspired in large part by her grandmothers. Both women were incredibly crafty and not only sewed their own clothing but were artists with a variety of mediums.
Kaitlyn has always been a dreamer and began writing at a young age. All of the writing quickly translated to blogging by the age of 12 and her love of the web was born. After spending too much time making graphics with other people’s photos Kaitlyn decided to start taking her own. She spent more time taking photos than actually creating graphics and discovered a new passion in life, photography.
By the age of 23 Kaitlyn had worked professionally as a photographer before moving onto a career in social media and web development with a branding and design firm called Studio Two, her official title —Social Media Manager. She worked closely with Studio Two’s clients to help create strategies for growing their social presence. She also worked closely with Studio Two’s programmer and web designer to develop up and coming projects.
Kaitlyn has since left Studio Two and in May of 2013 has join the team at Everyday Health as the social media manager for another fantastic brand.
On October 1st, 2011 Kaitlyn married her best friend in her home of the Berkshires. The day was inspired by Kaitlyn’s love of classic and vintage beauty. The wedding & reception took place at the very historic & beautiful Ventfort Hall in Lenox, MA on a rainy autumn day.
