Caitlin Jacob

Caitlin made her way to Lafayette more than a decade ago, after growing up in North Carolina and then graduating from the University of Georgia. Since then, she married the man who introduced her to Cajun country, and they welcomed their now 4 year old daughter into the world. She spends her days as the Digital Director for The Daily Advertiser, helping to coordinate video, photo, and online coverage of everything happening in Acadiana. When she’s not working or wrangling her tiny human, she can be found running (slowly), testing new baking recipes (ask about her almond poppyseed bread), or wielding a glue gun for her latest craft project.
