Kaytlin is originally from Minnesota and that is where she first found a passion for the outdoors at a young age. She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Nebraska Lincoln and has been a licensed veterinary technician for the past 11 years. She has spent the last 5 years working on the animal health team at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, assisting veterinarians with the health care of all the animals at the zoo. In addition to the animal care, Kaytlin assisted scientists with White Rhino, Greater One-horned Rhino, and Philippine Crocodile reproduction through sample collection and ultrasound monitoring of follicle development. It was during her time at the zoo she had the opportunity to participate in bighorn sheep field work in Western Nebraska which led her to her current position at South Dakota State University working towards her master's degree researching pathogen prevalence in domestic sheep with implications for bighorn sheep conservation and domestic sheep fitness with Dr. Jonathan Jenks and Dr. Josh Stafford.
