Caitlin’s interest in acting was born while she was attending elementary school, as she usually watched at least one movie with her family each week. Her interest grew stronger as the years went by, and Caitlin eventually found herself a member of her high school’s drama club. She wanted to venture into acting straight after matriculating in 2006, but was advised by her parents to obtain a college degree, for if she didn’t have success in acting, she could always do something else. Caitlin took their advice, enrolling at Wagner College from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in both theatre performance and speech in 2010.

Caitlin spent the following three years away from the media’s attention, apparently focused on theatre, and appearing in various plays before winning her first movie role in the 2013 short “Me, Cake and Toaster Oven”, written and directed by Lauren Heirigs, and which also starred Sarah Babin and Brett Radek.
