On top of being our new store manager, Carina has been diligently working as Clever Octopus’ social media coordinator. In 2018, Clever Octopus invested more time and energy in our marketing efforts. In doing so, we grew our likes by 140% on Instagram and 192% on Facebook, which means higher engagement and awareness of what we do!

Carina is excited to start her new journey with Clever Octopus. She notes that it has been a blast working at COI for the past year, and she is thrilled to step in a bigger role and continue to be a part of an organization that she can easily be passionate about!
