Oh, Hi!

Meet Our Leader.

Hi there, I’m Kailey. I’m a born and raised Cochranite now raising my two beautiful girls in my hometown. I drink wine, eat all the things, and love to move my body to balance it all out. I have traveled to over fifteen countries & love to immerse myself in new cultures, try new food, and speak the languages.

People are my jam. I work with local entrepreneurs and business owners to create community and connections that help expand their reach through social media and event management.

Over the past few years, I have had the immense pleasure of working alongside some wonderful Cochrane organizations through both social media and event management. I have founded strong relationships within the community and am proud to witness our entrepreneurs and small business owners community continuously coming together to support one another to thrive in our little town.

Cochrane, Alberta is my home, and, now more than ever, it is my passion. From friendly smiles to Rocky Mountain views, there is just something about this valley town that makes my heart proud and I am so happy to call this beautiful area home.

Meet Our Team.

Kathleen Dennis, Operations Assistant

Hello, my name is Kathleen Dennis (or Kat for short) and I am thrilled to be on Kailey’s team with Quirk Social and The Social Spot. I have lived in Cochrane for the majority of my life and love what this vibrant community has to offer. I have assisted with many events with Quirk Social and the Town of Cochrane and I value the importance of community connection. I have my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Alberta and prior to working with Quirk, I spent my career in the social services sector. My husband and I have two beautiful young children and when I am not with my family and friends, I’m probably playing soccer or at our family cabin in the Little Shuswap.

P.S. Kailey & Kathleen have been friends since they were 10 years old!

Tiana Carson, Social Media & Event Assistant

Hey, I’m Tiana! I grew up in the beautiful, sunny city of Medicine Hat, AB, and a sense of community has always been important to me. My natural passion for being creative goes as far back as I can remember! From performing in musicals and dancing competitively, to attending every festival possible – I have explored nearly all areas of the arts.

After uprooting my life and moving to Edmonton in 2014, I studied Arts & Cultural Management at MacEwan University. I began my career with the Jubilee Auditorium, where I was fortunate to have the most beautiful variety of experiences. My main areas of focus include marketing, social media, photography, and event management. Additionally, I’ve worked for Original Joe’s Restaurant since 2013, both as a FOH Team Member & Social Media Coordinator.

I’m at my happiest when playing with my pup, working on a creative project, listening to podcasts, dancing at a concert, or shopping for (more) plants. I’ve traveled all over from China to Portugal, and have been counting the days until I can continue checking off my bucket list.

After seven years in the big city, we uprooted our lives again… and I feel very lucky to now call Cochrane home. I instantly had a connection with this amazing little town. I’m beyond excited to continue my career with the Quirk Social team, and can’t wait to connect with more of the wonderful people who have built this community!
