About Our team


Caitlin Mccarthy, FOUNDER

After spending years working in the hospitality industry and working in some of Chicago's best restaurants, Caitlin wanted to further her invested interest in the restaurant industry by launching C|Louise Public Relations. While she lives to eat, her experience is not limited to the hospitality industry. Invite her for a coffee and she can share the details of working with numerous notable fashion and jewelry designers and musicians.





Rebecca joined C|Louise PR in 2016 to combine her two loves: food and wine. Since joining the CLPR team, Rebecca has worked on numerous successful campaigns and events. She is heavily involved in both the Public Relations and Social Media efforts. Don't ask Rebecca to choose her love between food and wine... she won't be able to choose.



Gabby Barnes, pr ASSISTANT

With a passion for food, writing, and all things creative, Gabby found the perfect fit at C|Louise PR. Gabby has experience writing for a number of outlets on a variety of subjects, but her favorite topic is, of course, food! There are few things she loves more than her dog and The Beatles, but bring her a doughnut (preferably from Do-Rite) and she’ll love you forever.



Caitlin Schneider, GRaphic DEsigner 

After completing her education at the University of Dayton, Caitlin ventured back to Chicago to fulfill her passion for art and design as the Graphic Designer for C|Louise Public Relations. Caitlin finds inspiration through the energy of the city while remaining true to her signature clean and minimalist design aesthetic. While she isn't working her graphics magic, Caitlin can likely be found scoping out the newest vegetarian restaurants or catching the latest indie film at the theater.
