After growing up skiing, Kaitlyn's mom attempted to teach her how to snowboard at Sun Valley's Lower River Run. It wasn’t until the ninth grade that she joined the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation's snowboard team and later made U.S. Snowboarding's 2008 Rookie Team as a junior in high school.

Since then, Kaitlyn has become one of the most popular and sought after halfpipe female athletes with her greatest achievements to date being the 2011-12 Dew Tour Champion and earning a gold medal at the inaugural X Games Europe. In addition to being in the national campaign for X Games Aspen in January 2013 and winning competitions across the globe, Kaitlyn is also a 2014 Olympic hopeful in Sochi, Russia.

“I’m so excited to be joining such a great group of ambassadors on the B4BC team. The mission and goals of B4BC are great, and I couldn’t be happier to be able to be part of such a tremendous organization spreading awareness and knowledge about a disease that touches a lot of us at some point in our lives. Moms, sisters, aunts, all are effected, and I hope through the B4BC’s efforts we can help fight this disease.”
