Before joining Mercury, Caitlin served as a Senior Advisor in the Office of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In that role, she provided strategic guidance on developing events and long-term policy priorities. She worked closely with senior leaders in the Department, and across the Administration, on a wide range of major foreign policy issues, including the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review, global food security, and Internet Freedom.
Caitlin worked on crisis situations, including the Haiti earthquake, the Japan triple disaster, and WikiLeaks, coordinating closely with senior officials from the White House, National Security Council, Department of Defense, and USAID. In the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake, Caitlin conceived of, and with a small team, launched the record-setting mobile giving Text Haiti campaign that raised more than $36 million leveraging social media, traditional media and grassroots engagement.
Prior to her service at the State Department, Caitlin worked with the 2008 Clinton presidential campaign, serving as an advisor to President Clinton providing communications, engagement strategies, and rapid response—a role she reprised during Secretary Clinton’s confirmation process. Caitlin was Vice President for a strategic communications firm, specializing in crisis management, celebrity positioning, research and strategic communications. Caitlin has also served as a consultant to the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative. She was a key researcher for President Clinton’s three books My Life, Giving, and Back to Work, providing the President with informational memos and recommendations. In addition to research, she also helped provide content for Ambassador Felix Rohatyn on his book, Bold Endeavours.
Caitlin has advised national and state-wide political campaigns on communications, opposition research and policy. She brought these skills to her work on the New York City Olympic bid (NYC2012) for which she engaged reporters and influencers both domestically and internationally.
