Born and raised right here in Pelham, Caitlyn’s heartbeat is her family and community.
Caitlyn married her High School sweetheart, Jeremy Hatcher,and they have been married 9 years. Together they have 3 children Blakely (8), Brooklyn (8), and Cooper, (3). Caitlyn and her family are active members of First Baptist Church in Pelham. As a student at Pelham City Middle School, Caitlyn could be found most afternoons volunteering around town. Her passion for community involvement would later lead to a part time job here at the Chamber during high school as well as College. After graduation, while working as a licensed insurance agent for State Farm, Caitlyn served on multiple committees at the Chamber including serving as president of the board. In 2017 Caitlyn’s passion and desire to see her community thrive led her to apply for and later accept the position as Executive Director. Jeremy is an active member on several boards, including City Council, and Caitlyn has many dedicated hours she provides to the Chamber and it’s members, so spare time is hard to come by. However when they are not working, you can find her and Jeremy at the park in town with their kids or hanging out with friends. They are avid Football lovers, so during Football season you can find their family cheering on the Pelham Hornets or watching her favorite college team the Georgia Bulldogs!
