Caitlin Elizabeth Harper

Hi, I’m Caitlin

(in the Grand Canyon!)


I'm a communications and people pro, A cULTURE steward, and A creative problem solver.

For the past ten years, I have managed operations, communications, and people strategy in global media companies, small businesses, non-profits, and government agencies.

I’m the Director of Internal Communications and Company Culture at Insider Inc., where I lead our Operations & Culture Team, serve as the steward of our great company culture, manage our internal communications, and work with other leaders to connect and grow our teams.

My main goal in life is to create, scale, and strengthen communities and spaces where creative people can be productive, communicate effectively, and reach their goals.


Learning and teaching

I earned my BA in English at the University of Florida with minors in Linguistics, Psychology, and Entrepreneurship and my MFA in Creative Writing with a fiction concentration at The New School. I’m the author of the young adult novel, It Will Set You Free, and I’m currently at work on my second novel. I’m a professional and personal development nut and I teach workshops about elevator pitches, networking, time management, impostor syndrome, and more. I'm the founder and host of the Renegade Reading Series, a monthly event that features emerging writers in NYC. I’m also a Harry Potter scholar specializing in Quidditch (yes, it’s a real thing).



I live in Brooklyn in an awesome apartment with my awesome partner, Martin, and two super-awesome kitties, Bubble and Squeak. When I’m not working or doing one of my many hobbies above, I’m traveling the world, reading, wandering around the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, cooking, or checking out NYC’s amazing food, craft beer, and distilleries.
