Staff Spotlight: Caitlin

By Breanna Appling, account associate

In this feature, we interview one of our fabulous team members  to show a little spotlight on the staff that makes IMI great. Today we’re highlighting Caitlin Smith.

Caitlin has been part of the IMI team since February 2017 and brings a variety of experiences to IMI. Born and raised in Greensboro, N.C., Caitlin served four years in the U.S. Navy on a forward deployed aircraft carrier as a Hull Maintenance Technician Engineer and traveled the world. We asked Caitlin a little bit about herself. Check out what she had to say!

IMI: What are some things you like to do in your spare time?

CAITLIN:  Play with my dogs, spend time outdoors, and explore new places.

IMI: What is one thing that people would be surprised to know about you?

CAITLIN: I was a welder and a firefighter in the U.S. Navy.


IMI: Who/what is one thing that gives you inspiration?

CAITLIN: I am easily inspired. I pull inspiration from almost anything. Eating, traveling, reading, looking at art, shopping or simply walking down the streets of the city have all been summations of my inspiration. I would say my biggest inspiration, though, would be my goals and where I want to be in the future.

IMI: What’s one word you would use to describe the Association Management industry?

CAITLIN: Influential.

IMI: How has your background helped you face challenges within the industry?

CAITLIN: Having a military background has helped me in finding alternate solutions to problem solving.
