NIDA acknowledges the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands on which we learn and tell stories, the Bidjigal, Gadigal, Dharawal and Dharug peoples, and we pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past and present.
Kaitlyn grew up in the outer east of Melbourne with her mum and little sister, surrounded by dance, music and performance in a house that always had more animals than humans. Some of her fondest teenage memories are travelling with her mum all the way into Brunswick on a Saturday morning to study jazz saxophone and playing with the adults in Big Band.
Before commencing her BFA, Kaitlyn performed in Much Ado About Nothing with the Australian Shakespeare Company’s Graduate Players. She had the time of her life touring around Melbourne, regional Victoria and Prague, Czech Republic (her first time overseas!).
Kaitlyn is also a graduate of the VCA Secondary School and of NIDA’s Diploma of Stage and Screen Performance. At NIDA, she has found lots of joy in writing, the world of motion capture and playing the quirky side characters.
In her spare time, she enjoys yoga and swimming at the beach, or doing a jigsaw on the floor of her room while listening to James Blunt.
