In March of 2015, Full Court Press welcomed both Caitlin Scott and Audrey Baker to the team. Now serving as Senior Communications Counselor and Communications Counselor respectively, Caitlin and Audrey have learned, grown, and contributed greatly while at FCP. While each serves a unique role, together they bring much wisdom, joyfulness, and liveliness to the office. From song development for “FCP the Musical” (which will remain forever ‘in production’) to a daily competition to throw their banana peels into the compost bin, the office would be a much less fun place without them. Today, they reflect on their three years with FCP by answering some questions for us.
What is one of the coolest things you’ve experienced or biggest accomplishments you’ve had at Full Court Press?
Caitlin (CS): One of my favorite days of my tenure at FCP was the Words to Action event at San Jose State University. We helped produce and staff the event, which launched the University’s Institute for the Study of Sport, Society and Social Change. I supported the stage manager running the show, and got to meet the events featured speakers: Jim Brown, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Harry Edwards, Tommie Smith, Takeo Spikes, Chris Webber, and Anquan Boldin. Meeting these people, who are not only sports stars and cultural icons, but activists for social change and racial equality, was an experience I’ll never forget.
Audrey (AB): The Vibe Solano CDC grant was one of the largest accomplishments I’ve experienced at FCP. As part of this grant, FCP was hired to lead in branding, developing, and executing a two-year public health awareness campaign. The campaign, VibeSolano, spread the word about efforts by Solano County to create healthier environments with and for residents. FCP created numerous social media campaigns, worked with reporters to publish dozens of articles and opinion pieces in local newspapers, and placed nearly $1 million in targeted paid advertising on TV, radio, cinema, digital, and social media.
