No stranger to the big stage, Kaitlyn can credit a decade of acting and dancing for helping her shine behind the pine and brings a unique combination of creativity, speed and knowledge to her role as bar manager. A fan of shaking up a wide selection of innovative-yet-approachable drinks, Kaitlyn loves to incorporate local spirits and seasonal ingredients akin to Royal Dinette’s locavore mantra.

Before joining the Royal Dinette team, Kaitlyn served as a bartender at local watering holes like Cactus Club, Black & Blue and Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar. She is also a regular on the cocktail competition circuit, with impressive first place finishes in the Smirnoff Caesar Challenge and the second annual Canadian Whisky Competition, as well as taking the top West Coast placement in the Speed Rack Canada Female Bartending Competition.
