She moved to Vancouver, Canada after winning a dance scholarship, affording her the opportunity to leave her small hometown. In addition to dancing, Kaitlyn is a singer and model and has appeared in a music video for the song “It’s a Love Song” by The Buried Life.

Kaitlyn initially competed against Britt Nilsson in the first episode of her season, with the male contestants voting Kaitlyn to be the season’s Bachelorette. At the end of the season, the decision came down between Nick Viall and Shawn Booth. Kaitlyn picked Shawn and the two were engaged.
