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 KCACTF and, “Best Onstage Contribution” for her graduating class, as well as was a two-time Irene Ryan finalist. The short film she made won some awards too, but not from any super fancy festivals so they don’t matter except on her bookshelf.
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 dogs. 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 directed her first film spot while in that role. Because: —enter inspiring pop song lyric here— and she knows it.
