Caitlyn’s work includes network television, national commercials, and independent film.
She studied Stanislavsky with Viacheslav Dolgachev from the Moscow New Drama Theater, Meisner at the Act Now Studio, is a graduate of the accredited Upright Citizens Brigade Improv Program, and studied individual and character-based improv with Miles Stroth in the Pack Theater program.
While getting her degree in Theater Performance, she was awarded “The Mark Twain Comedy Acting Award” at KC-ACTF and, “Best Onstage Contribution” for her graduating class, as well as was a two-time Irene Ryan finalist. The short film she wrote/produced/starred/peeled her skin off for also received some laurels and awards. Most importantly, she once got a hole-in-one at a retirement home put-put golf course.
She did improv in Los Angeles for a few years at iO, The Clubhouse, UCB, and ran a weekly long-form improv show with her team at The Pack Theater in Hollywood, until hanging up her converse to fully focus on writing and filmmaking. Sure, she could have done both, but she no longer found it fun, and why would you play make believe on stage with a bunch of weirdos if not for enjoyment?
BARF TOWN MODELING
She was a print and runway model for several years, which she hated, a lot.
WHERE IS SHE NOW?
Eating carbs and petting her dog. Most recently, she recurred as “Lynn” the world’s most awkward doctor on NBC’s Heartbeat, which was a screamin’ rainbow-ride of an experience. But that show got canned. So now Caitlyn does creative marketing and PR and is focusing on writing, producing and directing, because: —enter inspiring pop song lyric here— and she knows it.
