What is your role in the Salty Souls Experience ?
I’m the word nerd. I oversee the blog and make sure all the written content we’re putting out there is high-quality and on-point. I write, research, edit and interview inspiring people and their stories, and inspect the contents of my own brain box for the blog. I also take care of the social media and Salty community online.
What’s your background and how did you acquire those skills ?
I studied journalism and professional writing at Curtin University of Technology in Perth, Australia. I have been writing for online magazines aside of Uni since I was 18. My first forage into online publishing was with this feminist news and media site that let me use as many bad words as I wanted and write the kind of naughty subjects that had my mum going ‘Cait, do you have to put that on the internet?’ Then I was editor of my university magazine, and completed a range of internships in Perth and interstate, paid and unpaid. Since then I have been working with the Salty Souls for three years now, even forming a sister business together called The Salty Club.
What’s your biggest challenge within the Salty Souls Experience ?
Time differences! The whole Salty team travel a lot and so its not uncommon that we’ll be on opposite sides of the globe trying to tee up a good time for work meetings. When ones awake, the other is asleep, and vice versa. Other people wake up with texts from our lovers, I wake up to Salty-related messages from Erika and Marie-Christine!
Ninja super skill people don’t know you possess ?
I make stuff disappear. Literally. “My biggest weakness is that I lose my purse a lot… but my biggest strength is I always get it back.” – Ilana Glazer, Broad City.
Favorite place in the world ?
Anywhere I can surf and write and not be judged for wearing the same t-shirt 3 days in a row. I love Central America, and I love my home country of Australia, too.
What gets you the most excited in life ?
Writing! Surf! Connecting with likeminded humans. Seeing women stand in their truth and speak their desires and know their strength. Inquiring and learning about the world around me. Healthy love and relationships.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I mean. This one time I went for a 2-week holiday to Central America and never came back. It’s been three years now. lel.
