Bio: Kaitlyn is not only an Arbonne Independent Consultant but a stay at home mom, nanny to many and crafter extraordinaire! In her free time she enjoys....wait, she has no free time...  Kaitlyn is always looking for a new project to take on, most recently becoming a consultant and creating her own line of hair accessories.  She can be found on the beach in the summer and under a blanket, snuggled up with her toddler, in the winter.
