Hobbies: Kaitlin enjoys going on beach runs/walks, trying new hiking spots, experimenting with food fermentation, and exploring farmers’ markets.

Kaitlin’s Take on Los Angeles: “I love the constant sunshine and ability to go on a mountainous hike, explore the desert, and spend time at the beach, all in one day!”
