Key Talents: Kaitlin’s curiosity applies to all areas of her life—when she’s not managing our New York projects, she is trying local foods and seeking out the strangest tourist activities she can find. She has sheared a sheep (New Zealand), eaten kangaroo steak (Australia), played with a wolf (California), run a zombie race (New York), co-piloted a plane (Alaska) and enjoyed blood pudding (France).

When not out adventuring, Kaitlin is cooking and baking up a storm.
