I was born and raised in sunny Orange County, CA and refuse to move because I’m such a little beach bunny. I love being outdoors as much as possible. Whether it be hiking, surfing, laying out, camping, horseback riding, cliff jumping, or floating down the river, you might as well count me in for a good time!
Growing up my mom didn’t allow me to model, she didn’t want to expose me to the industry so young so in my teen years, I filled the spotlight void with beauty pageants. I won several local titles and my desire to be in the spotlight grew and grew. When I finally turned 18, that’s when I decided to really pursue my modeling career. It was a tough ball to get rolling because I didn’t know anything about the industry but I refused to be another pretty face that would get chewed up and spit out. I received a lot of rejection and little acceptance. I did a few music videos with an occasional photo shoot but nothing to really get my name out there. There were more times than not where I wanted to give up but I kept with it. Four years later, I finally got my big break.
I quit my waitressing job and haven’t looked back since. Now I’m booking steady work within the action sports, fashion, and hosting industries. I’ve reached my childhood goals but I won’t be stopping anytime soon, I’m always progressing my modeling career to be better than it was before. I have a go-getter personality that doesn’t take “no” for an answer. I live for the chance of a lifetime and refuse to settle for anything.
I recently graduated from Cal State University Fullerton with a degree in Advertising. I still plan on using my degree at some point in my life but I’m still searching for a way to incorporate it with my modeling aspirations too. Now I live in LA and love it. I’m booking more work than I’ve ever booked so I know the move from my hometown was so worth it.
QUESTION & ANSWER with Katelynn
*What motivates you?
To be a role model to my fans/followers. If I dont accomplish anything more in my life, I hope to be a role model for others and leave a legacy of motivation.
*Do you find it hard to balance your career with your personal life?
YES!! it’s so hard to keep relationships while I’m traveling so much. I really wish I could settle down soon though.
*What unique qualities separate you from other models?
Besides being the girl that eats pizza and beer and can work out like a beast, there are two things that really separate me from most models; I have my BA degree and I’ve never had plastic surgery.
*Name the one thing you can’t live without.
My personal space…and wine… preferably at the same time.
*What kind of girl were you growing up?
I was a total tom boy! I grew up playing in the streets with the neighborhood boys and never wearing make-up or doing my hair. I’m still a tom boy at heart, I just wear make up sometimes 😉
*What has changed since becoming a model and public figure?
People recognizing me. I’m not used to going places and people knowing who I am and wanting my autograph or knowing what commercials I’ve been in…its crazy & super flattering!!
*Name the one thing you would love to see happen in this world.
I would love to see more people being honest with one another. I’ve recently decided to be a 100% honest and its been amazing.
*Whats your favorite sport? and professional athlete?
My favorite sport is MMA and my favorite athlete is Cub Swanson because he is very tactical in the way that he fights and he likes to give back to the community he grew up in. I find that very respectable.
