About Caitlin McVicker

What did you dream of being as a kid?


When I was young, I dreamed of becoming a paleontologist! I always had a fascination with dinosaurs, and my parents would buy me these cool sand/digging ‘toys’ where you could excavate items using little tools. I remember playing this cool paleontologist computer game, and it was always my plan to be one – until I learned how much calculus was involved!


What can’t you live without?


I can’t live without my day planner. I am a very busy person, and my day planner has been a saving grace for the past number of years. I’m very picky about how they’re laid out, too, and I like them to be fun! My last two day planners had sloths on them.


What are your hobbies?


My hobbies include playing violin & video games, and attending concerts! I’ve always considered concerts a hobby of mine because I’m very passionate about music. My first concert ever was Green Day in 2005! Since then, I’ve seen hundreds of shows (from tiny bars to huge fields), and have even traveled to the U.S. twice to attend larger, multi-day festivals.


What are you most proud of?


The thing I’m most proud of in my life is my work ethic. It has allowed me to experience many different jobs, opportunities, and afforded me the ability to travel. It’s helping me grow in my career and has allowed me to support myself comfortably while continuing to do the things I love.








I have been writing creatively since I was 11 years old! I began with poetry and short stories, and have evolved my skill into both technical writing and ad writing. I have a vast amount of experience with academic/scholarly writing, but my favourite type of writing would have to be blog writing. I’ve learned so much about different topics thanks to it!
