For fun (and because you’re all so curious!), we’re rolling out profiles on the Poppy Barley staff. Last week we introduced you to our Customer Insights Specialist, Breanne. This week, meet our very talented and super-fun Community Manager, Caroline.
Caroline’s passion for new media and fashion intersect at Poppy Barley, where she’s our head writer, creative director and social media wizard. Caroline coordinates photo shoots and editorial schedules, collaborates with bloggers and media, and crafts thoughtful stories for our blog. Caroline is super personable, making her the perfect candidate to work with our entire social media community. Her daily routine includes tweeting, pinning, posting, sharing, loving, and plus-oneing.
Always in the know as a freelance style and travel writer (in addition to being our social media manager, she's also the Alberta Editor for FASHION Magazine and ran the society column at the Edmonton Journal for a year), Caroline always suggests the best places to go, eat, hangout - and of course, what to wear.

My typical day at the office...
Involves managing all of our Poppy Barley social media channels (day or night), like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, and helping to brainstorm cool marketing initiatives with the team. I also curate and write blog posts, lead press outreach, and plan our campaign photo shoots (which equals FUN).
