Team Member Spotlight: Katelyn Rattray, Content Marketing Manager
Here at Hotel Engine, we believe a company is only as extraordinary as its people. We’ve dedicated ourselves to improving the lives of business travelers but want to show off the people who work at Hotel Engine and help make that happen. Every month, we’ll be doing a Q&A with one of our amazing team members to showcase the folks behind the scenes of Hotel Engine.
Katelyn joined us in 2019 as a Content Marketing Manager on the Marketing team. Her ability to truly connect with her team members inside and outside of work makes her an incredible addition to our team. So, let’s get to know Katelyn!
Where are you from?
The land of beer, sausage, and cheese: Milwaukee, WI.
What’s your favorite part about your team?
Even if a day gets stressful, we always have fun working together. There are always some laughs as we work through a project or challenge together.
What’s your spirit animal and why?
I would say probably a cat. I socialize when I want to, but I really need my alone time to recharge. I usually take time to observe my surroundings or the context of a situation before acting, and I tend to be very independent and want to do things and complete tasks on my own.
What do you love about working for Hotel Engine?
Everyone is genuinely willing to help out others around them. We are all very busy during the day, but people are always willing to take a moment to answer your questions and help you find the best solution to a challenge.
What do you like to do when you’re not at the office?
I would say I’m definitely a “maker” by night. I love to do hand lettering, macramé, and some graphic design in my free time. I also will never turn down some snuggle time with my cat, Bodhi, and dog, Bernie — or the opportunity to check out a new brewery, some live music, or hiking trail.
What’s your favorite HE value?
My favorite Hotel Engine value is “together we thrive.” I think so many companies make reaching goals a competition and end up building walls between departments and teams. Hotel Engine really puts a focus on the fact that we are all one team striving to achieve our goals. Our departmental goals roll up into that, but we truly all work together to get there.
What’s your favorite thing about living in Colorado?
The lack of humidity! I don’t miss that about Wisconsin. 😉 But seriously, I love having mountains so close by and the easy access to hiking and other outdoor activities.
