Born and raised in New Jersey, Kaitlin is enjoying her trek around the United States.

She's back down in the Bayou State after spending almost three years in Louisville, Kentucky reporting for Fox 8’s sister station WAVE 3.

Kaitlin started her career in Lake Charles after graduating from Rider University with a major in Digital Media and a minor in Political Science.

Obsessed with animals and music, Kaitlin can often be found spending time with her rabbit and two dogs or out dancing at a show.

She's excited to be in New Orleans and would love to tell your stories!
