Ms. Kane-Gibson is a 1997 graduate of Caribou High School, a 2001 graduate of Boston University and has spent the past 13 years working In Promotions & Marketing for the FOX owned television station in Austin, Texas (2003-2014) and as the Public Information Officer for the City of Hutto, Texas (2014-2017).

I am so excited to be back home,” Ms. Kane-Gibson said. “I’ve loved my time in Texas, but Caribou is where we want to be. During the past two years I worked closely with the Hutto [Texas] Downtown Manager and earned a true appreciation for community supported events as a key to economic vitality. With top-notch promotion and strategic marketing, we can enhance the economic base of Caribou and The County… and have a ton of fun in the process!”

Ms. Kane-Gibson is also working on her Certified Public Communicator designation from Texas Christian University. As part of her course work, she will prepare a Strategic Communications Plan for the City of Caribou which will include city-specific internal, external, event and crisis communications frameworks.

This plan will help further the City’s communication efforts with a strategy tailored to the needs of Caribou,” Ms. Kane-Gibson explained. “I’m shooting for a completion deadline of July 2017 and will be turning to staff, Council and residents for information and feedback. This is a project  that I am passionate about and I am very excited to work with you.”

Ms. Kane-Gibson, her husband John and sons Dean (7) and Jack (4) are excited to be a part of the Caribou community. A Welcome Reception will be held on March 22, 2017 from 4pm-6pm at the Caribou Wellness Center multipurpose rooms. Members of the community are invited to come and connect. Light refreshments will be served.
