Member profile: Caitlin
Caitlin is a Champlain College graduate and fashion blogger that lives in Burlington’s Old North End. Originally from York, Maine, Caitlin first joined CarShare Vermont because she needed to go grocery shopping more often than her housemates. She’s been a loyal member since last April and we were excited to chat with her about her car-sharing adventures.
So you’re a Mainer?
Yeah, I grew up on the beach, which makes me a little snobby when it comes to Lake Champlain. I also disagree when anyone claims to have had a great lobster in Vermont. You can’t get a great lobster in a landlocked state.
What do you do for work?
I work at Research Systems Group as an administrative assistant in the Burlington office. I’m also an assistant to the marketing director.
How do you usually get around?
I walk everywhere. I haven’t owned a car since I moved to Burlington.
What do you use the cars for most of the time?
Besides grocery shopping, I use them a lot for last minute work errands. My coworkers got tired of me borrowing their cars. Or, if I want to go shopping and fill the car up with shoes.
Shoes are my thing.
What do you do for fun?
Well, I started a blog three-and-a-half months ago called Wore Out. I also love hiking.
What are your favorites in the fashion world?
I like Jeffrey Campbell for the big heels. They’re really easy to walk in. And any Frye Boot. Locally, I love the Clothing Line and Downtown Threads for vintage clothes.
Which cars do you use the most?
Otto and Ramona.
If you had to give Otto a personality, what would he be like?
I hope he would be all metro with skinny jeans, a popped collar and a pair of great loafers or some Toms.
What’s on the radio when you’re driving?
The Elvis Duran show in the morning. I like the ridiculous antics. And Farm Fresh has great driving music.
Do you sing along?
Like a lunatic!
What’s your favorite road trip snack?
Anything Haribo especially the gummy bears. They’re not messy.
Car-sharing is just so easy. I didn’t realize how seriously easy it was. I just wish I’d known about it in college.
