Welcome to The Herald Group, Caitlin!

This August, Caitlin Burns joined The Herald Group’s continually expanding team as our newest associate. She already has integrated herself as a valuable team member on a variety of accounts. We sat down for a quick Q&A so you can get to know more about her until you meet her in person.


Tell us a little about yourself.

I recently graduated from Penn State University this past May with a B.A. in Media Studies and a minor in Digital Media Trends and Analytics. My previous experience includes interning at a small public policy firm in Washington, D.C. over the past two summers.

What excites you the most about working in public affairs?

I am most excited about working in public affairs because I believe it is such an ever-changing industry with so many opportunities for growth. I look forward to utilizing what I have learned in my previous experiences as well as developing new skills.

What drew you to THG?

I love the community aspect of THG and the opportunity to work with such encouraging, passionate, and hardworking individuals. I am constantly learning and given the opportunity to push myself each day.

What is your favorite thing about Washington, DC?

My favorite thing about Washington, D.C. is the history and variety of cultures. There is always something new to try—whether it be a new restaurant, museum, or activity.
