My name’s Caitey,
and I’m on a quest to protect and support our natural spaces.
Hi! I’m Caitey.
For the past decade, I’ve worked in marketing and communications helping entrepreneurs build businesses that are making a difference in the world. They’re extraordinary human beings pursuing their dreams, and now they’ve inspired me to follow mine.
My objective: to make a meaningful contribution protecting the forests and natural ecosystems in BC.
As a Forest & Natural Areas Management student, I’m looking to gain hands-on experience working in forests, parks, trails and natural spaces. Read on to learn what I have to offer!
Caitey Goes Above & Beyond
“It is so hard to find someone that goes above and beyond what is expected. That is unless you work with Caitey Gilchrist… She listened (is that ever refreshing) and provided the work in a very timely fashion.“
– Jeanette M.
Caitey Is a Team Player
“She faces challenges head-on and does a great job… She is a great team player, never complains, and raises great questions to her senior who loves sitting next to her as [Caitey] is a great resource to have when issues come up.“
– Kate J.
Caitey Has a Great Work Ethic
“A competent, valued part of our team with a great work ethic… Whether alone or in a team dynamic, Caitey proved up to the task.“
– Larry W.
There Is Nothing That Stops Caitey
“Keen to help out her fellow teammates… There is nothing that stops Caitey. She will always pick us up with an emphatic “Go Team!” to round off any pre-shift huddle. Thanks for being such a rockstar, Caitey! We’re so glad you’re on our team.“
– Brad B.
Psst… Here are some of my skills
My active listening skills help me pick up new skills super quickly. I’m also an avid self-teacher.
I taught myself HTML when I was 12 years old. More impressive: I enjoy doing my taxes. (Guess which skill has been more useful.)
Whether written or spoken, I’m capable of getting important points across clearly and diplomatically.
I also know a little French! (Je parle un peu de français aussi!)
Resilient & Patient
I may work fast, but I’m no stranger to long-term, deeply detailed projects. I’m not afraid to put in the hard work.
I once planned and hosted a four-day online marketing summit with 16 speakers (by myself).
