About Cait

Where I'm From: I'm originally from Upstate New York, but moved to Arlington, Virginia after graduating from school and love the (almost) snow-free winters!

Marital Status: Single, but enjoying all of my friends' engagements and marriages.

Day Career: I started out in recruiting for a large consulting firm and then recruited myself for a position in IT Customer Relationship Management consulting, which was the best hiring decision I made.

More About Me: Although I haven't been in 27 weddings like Katherine Heigl in 27 Dresses, I have been to a lot of weddings. I found that I love the small details of a wedding and all the thought and creativity that goes into one. I enjoy helping out family and friends with ideas, planning, and all the do-it-yourself crafts. I somehow am always involuntarily volunteered to help with those last minute programs and table placecards! Besides weddings, I love traveling, window-shopping, and drinking a nice glass of wine after a long day at work.
