About Caitlin O'Hara

Shawn’s daughter, Caitlin has been around Radar Hill since its inception, and working with them in a professional capacity since 2016. After 1.5 years of being in the office, she moved to the beautiful city of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom, where she at first continued to be a remote employee. She soon evolved into a virtual assistant, and began the Scottish branch of Radar Hill, by joining a BNI chapter. Overseeing a wide range of tasks, she is helping to further the growth of the company, from writing blogs, compiling website content, audio transcription, and client communication.
