Meet Kaitlyn
great at social marketing stuff and more

Hi, I’m Kaitlyn. Also a shoe fanatic and cheese fiend, and lover of purple. I joined the starfish team in June 2018. 

With a background in administration and social media, I'm experienced in, and understand, the in's and out's of social media. 

I'm also responsible for other marketing stuff too - mainly in the digital marketing space. That includes (in addition to social media) content writing, web updates, communication, design, campaigns, and everything in between,

Mell says I have a "marketing brain". This means I understand the requirement for a strategic approach to marketing. Particularly when it comes to understanding different industries, target markets, and client brand position and social needs.

I love creating content that showcases your business, conveys your brand and creates engagement with your market.

If you need support with your social media and digital marketing then I can help you out.
