Thanks for stopping by. I’m so excited that you decided to learn more about me!
First and foremost, I am a wife and mother to 2 boys, Kyle and Mason. They’re part of the reason that I continued to pursue my dream of being a business owner. Having the ability to make my own hours and still be present for them is invaluable, and an experience for which I will forever be indebted to my amazing husband.
As a kid, I was always organizing everything. I loved stationary and paper and pens and markers and journals and planners and anything else that allowed me to plan and organize. Trapper Keepers and Lisa Frank? Yes, PLEASE! As I got older, that love for organization became a love for planning, particularly fun things like events. I woke up one day with the thought, “Could I actually make a living doing this?”. I had gone to Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, CT for my Bachelor’s Degree in Communications, so I had a little knowledge about business and how they worked. When the idea began to formulate more and more in my head, I decided to take my education even further and pursue a Master of Business Administration Degree. Right after I earned this degree, I had my first son, so the timing was perfect! I was able to be home with him during the week while my husband worked, and work at night and on the weekends, when most events took place!
More than 10 years later, I still love bringing the idea and concept of a wedding or event into reality. Each one plays out differently, and I love that! It keeps things fresh and exciting! I can’t wait to hear from you and learn all about how I can help with your next event!
Caitlin Battis (Casey) joined the Pink Olive Events team as an intern in 2009 and is now our Head Coordinator.

Currently, Caitlin is a candidate for a Master of Business Administration from Post University in Waterbury, CT, and holds a Bachelor of Science in Communication from Southern Connecticut State University. In her free time, Caitlin enjoys golfing in the summer and Ski trips in the winter, as well as spending as much time as possible with her friends and family.
After working in many office settings and taking the time to raise my daughters, I figured now was the perfect time to chase a dream of mine. I found great joy in planning my own wedding in 2013. Since then I have been going above and beyond for my daughter’s birthday parties. I am always coming up with some creative twist to make the theme they pick stand out. I am excited to be a part of Pink Olive Events and look forward to meeting with many couples to make their dream wedding come true.
