Meet Kaitlyn

Oboe player. Spreadsheet lover. Swing Dancer. Meet Kaitlyn, our new Communication Specialist.

Kaitlyn is a Chicago native but made Dayton her home when she came to the University of Dayton, where she double majored in Entrepreneurship and Marketing and achieved a graduate certificate in Non-Profit Organizations and Community Leadership.

Dance was Kaitlyn’s first passion. She started at the age of three with tap, ballet, and jazz. By her high school graduation, she had tap-danced professionally in Chicago. Now in Dayton, Kaitlyn is a member of Gem City Swing and teaches beginner and advanced swing dance classes. Kaitlyn has also been playing the oboe for 15 years and now performs locally with various groups.

Kaitlyn started her college career studying business and quickly fell in love with marketing: from the creative opportunities to the analytical nature of behaviors, she loves how marketing is an ever-changing field. Kaitlyn enjoys facing the challenges of continuous learning and growth.

Kaitlyn brings four years of marketing experience to her new position and has expertise in proposal writing, marketing analytics, and social media. (She’s won two awards for her social media campaigns.) And she’s already putting these skills to use at Sparkbox, working to improve our proposals and streamline our analytics.

A rule she lives by is that you should never be afraid to talk to someone or ask them to grab a cup of coffee. This has worked well for her, as some of her most important connections have been made this way.

From her creative hobbies to her passion for numbers, Kaitlyn is a great fit for Sparkbox, and we’re glad to have her here. Please join us in welcoming her to the Sparkbox team. Say hi to her on Twitter.
