Herd Highlight is a blog series highlighting the outstanding members of our Herd. From PR pros to digital marketing masterminds, each Buffalo has a unique story. Learn more about our team each month.
A new addition to the Buffalo digital team, Manager Kayla Chapin is an Iowa native exploring her new home in Minneapolis, MN after spending the last few years enjoying the rainy outdoors of the Pacific Northwest.
As a new member of the team, what excites you about joining the Herd?
I’m most looking forward to learning a new industry and working with a variety of interesting and diverse clients.
What did you do before joining Buffalo?
I spent six years working primarily in automotive marketing and tech after a stint as a florist post-college graduation. I clearly had no grand plans for my history degree!
What are you most looking forward to in 2022?
Exploring my new city more, and MAYBE even dabbling in some Minnesota winter activities (no guarantees).
What are a few of your favorite things to do outside of the office?
I love to travel where the cheapest plane ticket will take me, my greatest score being a $495 roundtrip flight from Portland to Brisbane (without any credit card miles!). I also love to cook, try new restaurants and watering holes, use my living room as a less-functional greenhouse, collect books I’ll never read, and hang out with my elderly cat.
Tell us a fun act about you!
I am a bit of a thrill-seeker on the road. I learned to scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef and went skydiving in Namibia. Otherwise, I’m a total homebody and if you ask me what I did last weekend, the answer is usually “nothing.”
