Caitlen is a native of Charleston, SC.  She grew up on a state championship swim team, in a youth theatre program, and loves the beach.  Caitlen is an alumni of the Charleston Youth Company (CYC), having been in the company for eight years and performed in numerous productions. I began my acting/musical theatre career with my first professional role as Brenda in Hairspray with The Charleston Stage Company at the age of 16. In 2011, Caitlen was crowned Miss South Carolina’s Outstanding Teen and represented the state of SC at Miss America’s Outstanding Teen (MAOT) pageant.  MAOT is a part of the Miss America Organization (MAO), the largest scholarship based organization for women, with emphasis on service, scholarship, style, and success.  A large part of being a member of this organization is volunteering with your personal platform and then the national platform – The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.  My personal platform being The Miracle League, a baseball league established for disabled children and adults.

Caitlen is a recent Cum Laude graduate of Coastal Carolina University with a BFA in Acting, and is ecstatic to begin her life in NYC.

Childcare Experience:  Caitlen has been taking care of and working with children for many years.  From caring for the little kids in her church at a young age, to babysitting her little sister, cousins, and family friends, to becoming a teaching artist. As a member of CYC, she helped with kids camps during the summer months teaching kids acting, dancing, and singing. Caitlen has extensive experience working with kids with special needs.  Last summer, Caitlen performed at the Allenberry Resort and Playhouse in Boiling Springs, PA, where she was part of the ensemble in the production of South Pacific.  At Allenberry, Caitlen was also an Acting Intern and taught kids (ages 10-18) the concepts of theatre, music, and art engaging the children in many activities that helped them be creative and then performed in the show at night.  The summer before that, Caitlen played the swing character for Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Bo Peep, and Pinocchio at a children’s amusement park – Storyland in New Hampshire.

Personal Interests:  Caitlen cannot sit still! A fun loving Aries, Caitlen enjoys reaching her artistic/life goals, going to the beach, singing in the car (or anywhere really), going to see Broadway shows, riding rollercoasters, cuddling puppies, and traveling.

Personal Quote:  “I believe that children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.”
