Hometown Abingdon, MD
Birthday Jan. 27
After discovering her athletic talents weren’t going to take her anywhere, Kaitlyn decided to go to school to become a sports journalist. She attended college at the University of Maryland, College Park; and when she wasn’t at basketball and football games, she was taking classes.
Before coming to Patch, Kaitlyn interned with The Baltimore Sun sports department for a summer during school; covered the Washington Capitals for Inside Hockey; covered high school sports in PG County; and worked for Maryland Athletics.
Kaitlyn received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Maryland and began freelancing for several publications after graduation.
Kaitlyn began freelance writing for Bel Air Patch covering high school football and community news before moving to Anne Arundel County.
Other than reading and writing, Kaitlyn enjoys watching sporting events with her family and boyfriend. She also enjoys spending time with her rabbit, Jake.
At Patch, we promise always to report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also acknowledge that true impartiality is impossible because human beings have beliefs. So in the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage editors to reveal their beliefs to the extent they feel comfortable. This disclosure is not a license for me to inject my beliefs into stories or to dictate coverage according to them. In fact, the intent is the opposite: Patch hopes that the knowledge that my beliefs are on the record will cause me to be ever mindful to write, report and edit in a fair, balanced way. And if you ever see evidence that I've failed in this mission, please let me know.
