Today’s post is exciting for many reasons, but I must tell you a funny story first!
Since posting our Team Superlatives in December, it has made me giggle how many of you have asked who won Best Top Knot after finding out it wasn’t me! I’ve gotten countless Instagram comments, direct messages, and even a comment in-person from a friend over the past month from curious folk! Well, today is your lucky day! I’m thrilled to introduce our newest team member and fellow top-knot-rocking friend, Casey Marchbanks!
Casey joined our team in early December, and in true Cultivate fashion, her very first days on the job involved our annual End-Of-Year Summit in Chapel Hill, NC! She dove in headfirst, and she’s been making us proud ever since! We’ve loved watching her flex her creative skills in a variety of ways from blog graphics to product design (and we have some good things in the pipeline, friends!) The best part? You can work alongside her, because we’re hiring a Senior Designer!
Our team is thrilled you finally get a chance to meet the lady we’ve come to adore over the past six weeks! Now, without further ado, meet the wonderful Casey Marchbanks!
What’s your title? Designer
What have you been doing since December? Since I started with Cultivate in December, I have been busy with lots of travel, training and getting to know the team! My first week of work I hoped on a plane to NC and dove right into our End-Of-Year Team Summit where we spent many fruitful hours dreaming, planning, learning and laughing! I spent the rest of the holiday season enjoying time with my family, digging into my PowerSheets and Couples Goal Guide alongside my husband, and since then I have been busy getting to know my new role and designing many things!
What else will you be doing in the coming months? Over the next few months I will be working hard with our newest Art Director on dreaming up and designing new products! I will also be prepping for our Making Things Happen Conference in March–both designing collateral and attending it for my first time (the day after my 30th birthday)!
Tell us how you joined the team in a few sentences: I was casually scrolling through my Instagram feed, and saw that the Cultivate Team was hiring and were open to remote candidates! I took a chance and sent off my portfolio and application, never in my wildest dreams expecting to be chosen, but knowing that I would regret it if I didn’t apply for such an amazing opportunity! It was a whirlwind from there and after a week of A LOT of video interviews and prayers, I found myself on a plane to Chapel Hill to meet the team!
Casey and I were work buddies this past month, and I’m already counting down the days until I see her in March at MTH!
Hometown and where you live now: I am from a Abilene, a small town in West Texas! I currently live in Fort Worth, Texas.
Birthday: March 17
Something others might not know about Casey: I have been married almost 8 years to my college sweetheart! I love brussels sprouts (they have to be roasted), bargain shopping (specifically at Ross), Hallmark Christmas movies, all things Disney, illustration, painting, yoga, and gift-giving!
Favorite part about being on team: My absolute favorite thing about being on the Cultivate team has nothing to do with design and everything to do with my amazing new co-workers. They are some of the most encouraging, passionate, driven and joyful women that I have ever had the privilege of knowing! I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to work alongside each of them to use our skills, talents, and experience to serve others! I love serving our customers by being a part of creating beautiful products to help women live more purposeful and joyful lives!
Friends, please help us give Casey a big CWM welcome in the comments below! She’s been such a delight to our team over the past month, and we know you are going to love her just as much as we do! You can also say hi and get to know her (and her precious pup!) on Instagram!
