    I have had the pleasure over the past couple of months to get to know Kaitlyn and her Mom. The support her mom gives her is awesome. Kaitlyn is loaded with talent but take it from a mom who knows, it doesn’t come without long hours of practice, sweat, and tears! Keep it up Kaitlyn, trust me your talent is not going unnoticed!
