Meet Trista Gareri

14

November, 2018

Trista, our fabulous copywriter and ad manager, joined BadCat in March. She’s blossomed in the position and continues to grow every day! She is a graduate of St. Cloud State University and grew up in St. Cloud. Let’s learn a little more about her.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in St. Cloud, MN.

 

Where did you attend school?

I attended Cathedral High School. After high school, I attended St. Cloud State University, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in English literature and a master’s degree in English studies.

 

What are some of your past employment experiences?

I worked as a makeup artist for a while. I was the Assistant Director of St. Cloud State’s Writing Center, which was an amazing job. One time, in a job interview, the interviewer asked me: “What is one word that you would use to describe yourself?” I answered with, “Awesome.” I got the job; that was at a casino.

 

Who’s your favorite BadCat and why?

Dachshunds are better than cats. (I have two.)

 

What’s your favorite book?

That’s not a fair question to ask someone with degrees in literature! If I was forced to choose, I guess I’d say The Complete Works of Shakespeare because it’s so historically and lexically important and it’s beautiful to read. Plus, Shakespeare is the love of my life so I might be a little biased.

 

When you’re not at BadCat, what can you be found doing?

I love to read. If the weather is nice, I’ll be out on my motorcycle. I like to play video games with my son. He doesn’t like it as much because I play to win—by any means necessary.

Like what you read? BadCat is even better in person.

It all starts with a conversation.
