Meet Team Smiley

Summer is here, which means so is our batch of newest Team Smiley interns! This crew is about to commence their summer-long journey across the tri-state area, where they’ll be visiting fundraisers, festivals, races, and other community events from now through the fall. 

Team Smiley equals fun! Click here to see when they’ll be visiting your neighborhood, then stop by with the family to meet Smiley and enjoy a free Smiley Cookie – or even decorate one yourself!

Throughout the summer, you’ll be able to read about Team Smiley’s adventures here on our blog.  And, if you have the opportunity to meet them at an event, be sure to check out our Photo Gallery to find your photo!

So without further ado, here’s the scoop on our new Team Smiley!

Hi! My name is Caitlin and I just completed my junior year at Penn State where I am pursuing a degree in public relations. In my free time, I enjoy concert-going, baking, reading, swimming, and dabbling in photography. I really love engaging with people and spreading joy, and Team Smiley is an ideal means to do so. Being a fan of road trips, I’m looking forward to traveling the tri-state to aid in brightening people’s days! I’m so excited to interact with fellow Eat’n Park devotees. Some of my menu favorites include the Oreo Pie, Vanilla Latte Milkshake, and Chicken Noodle Soup, with my favorite Smiley Cookie shape being the summer fish!

Hi everyone! My name is Courtney, and I am an Integrated Marketing Communications major at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York. I will be a junior in the fall. In my spare time, I love to hang out with my friends and family, go swimming, browse Pinterest, and listen to music. I also love traveling, and some people might be surprised to learn that I am spending the first semester of the coming school year in London. My favorite meal at my local Eat’n Park is the Buffalo Chicken Wrap, but I also love the Oreo Pie (or any other menu item with Oreos, for that matter!). In terms of Smiley Cookies, my favorite has to be the Halloween Smiley because of the candy corn eyes and nose! I am thrilled to be working with Team Smiley this summer, and I am most looking forward to becoming involved with the community and decorating LOTS of Smiley Cookies!

Hi there! My name is Lindsay and I'm going to be a junior at Duquesne University in the fall. In my spare time, I like to sing, dance and play with my dogs. Something people would be surprised to know about me is that I traveled to Paris last spring and I'm going to Dublin in the fall. When I'm having a rough day, an Eat'n Park Chocolate Milkshake and Grilled Stickies always seem to cheer me up! I look forward to all the learning experiences Team Smiley has to offer and to see all the different places we will go!

Hi!  My name is Katie and I am currently a senior at the University of Pittsburgh, planning to graduate this August.  I am majoring in media and professional communications.  I’ve also worked at the McKnight Road Eat’n Park for almost four years now, so I’m really excited to be a part of Team Smiley this summer!  I'm really looking forward to the events at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, but I will also enjoy helping Eat’n Park’s smallest guests decorate their very own Smiley cookies.  It’s a really tough choice, but my absolute favorite thing to get at Eat’n Park is the Baked Chicken Bruschetta, finished off with a pink fish Smiley Cookie, of course!

Hi!!! My name is Maura and I just graduated from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA with a degree in Public Relations and Advertising, and Broadcast Journalism.  I love horseback riding, baking cakes, the Steelers, and surprising people when I talk to them in a British accent (which I have perfected!).  My favorite thing to get at Eat’n Park is the Buffalo Chicken Salad, and of course, a Smiley Cookie for dessert! This summer, I am most looking forward to traveling around in the Cookie Cruiser with Smiley and the team so we can make the new people we meet smile!!
