Kaitlin grew up in Spokane, Washington, and graduated with a degree in Outdoor Recreation and Recreation Management from Eastern Washington University. She has been a member of Ski Patrol since 2011 in Idaho (Silver Mountain, and Sun Valley) and currently heading into her second year on ski patrol at Alyeska Resort in Girdwood, Alaska.
Kaitlin spends her summers instructing rafting and backpacking expeditions in Oregon for Outward Bound and California for the Chadwick School. Her certifications include: Wilderness First Responder, Outdoor Emergency care, and Avalanche level 1 and 2. Since beginning this outdoor lifestyle she has discovered her desire to not just enjoy the outdoors herself, but to share her experience and passion for the outdoors with others in the community. When not on her skis, she can be found rafting, backpacking, biking, and climbing.
