Her father is a musician and a big joker – Cait once told one his favorite jokes he liked to amuse her with when she was a small girl: ‘What is red and green and goes 60 miles per hour? A frog in a blender’. Cait also shared that her parents had always been very supportive and helped her to believe in herself and to achieve her dreams. Her mother taught her not to push herself too much, and to learn how to relax. Cait has a brother named Michael, who is a big hiking enthusiast.

Educational background

Little is known about Cait’s educational background, as it’s only known that she matriculated from her local high school in New York in 2011, and there’s no information about any college or university she then entered, probably focusing on her acting career and leaving this chapter unwritten for now.

Acting career

Cait’s parents like to remember that she enjoyed performing from a young age. She started showing interest in acting when she was eight years old, and when she turned 11 had her first role in the theatre production “American Girl Theatre”, then landed another role in the musical entitled “13”.

In 2014 she had a role in the off-Broadway production of “Heathers the Musical”, based on the original TV film of 1988. She also began appearing in such TV shows as “CSI: NY” (2007-2013), “Two and a Half Men” (2003 – 2015), in which she played the role of Joanne; “Everybody Hates Chris” (2005-2009) as Darlene, and played Kennedy in the “Lincoln Heights” series (2006 – 2009).

In 2018 Cait appeared in two more projects: the series entitled “The Middle” (2009 – 2018) in the role of Amanda, and “K.C. Undercover” (2013 – 2018) in which she played Ursula. She began appearing as Tessa Young in “The Young and the Restless” in 2017, and was even nominated for a Daytime Emmy in 2018

Music career

In 2019 Cait wrote a song for the latter series, called “How Could a Lie Feel So True”, which was nominated for the Best Original Song in the series. It was not her first songwriting experience; she earlier released her own music on her eponymous SoundCloud profile, performing her songs herself under the stage name Ginesse.

Personal life, ex-boyfriend Cary Singer

Cait earlier dated her long-term boyfriend Cary Singer; the two met in the circle of their mutual friends  in 2016. They barely hid their relationship, posting some personal photos on their Instagram accounts, wishing each other a Merry Christmas and congratulating each other on St. Valentine’s Day, however, they broke up in September 2018. Cait had hard times recovering from the painful break-up, and her new single called “Bedford” helped to heal her wounded soul, as well as rewriting some events in her memory to deal with her sadness.

‘While living in New York, I collected so many moments with this particular person, especially in Brooklyn which inspired the title. It’s about how you can rewrite the movie in your head and forget the reality of why it even ended. The ‘it wasn’t that bad’ stage of grieving. The ‘am I actually missing them or am I just lonely?’ stage’, she shared in her interview to the Nylon magazine in 2018. Cait uploaded the official video on the single on her YouTube channel, which displays Cait sitting in front of the big screen watching her walks with her ex-boyfriend.

Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts

Cait’s family is very active and easy-going; they like spending their spare time together, going hiking and camping. Cait has a black dog named Millie at her parents’ home in Orange County. Another hobby is photography – she often takes pictures of her friends and enjoys posting them on her Instagram account. Cait also says she loves spending time alone, enjoying silence and solitude, as at such moments she has time for some reflection and can think over many things bothering her.

Social media presence

Cait is active on various social media platforms, on Instagram and Twitter. Cait’s official Facebook page is ‘liked’ over 7,000 users, but her YouTube is not so popular yet, having only 1,000 subscribers.

Appearance, clothing style

Cait has naturally dark brown hair which is very curly so she always straightens it and likes wearing it down; she has hazel eyes. Her height, weight and vital statistics aren’t available at the moment, though one can see she keeps fit, and has a slender body.

As to her clothing style, she prefers designer clothes, though sticks to casual looks. Cait has a small tattoo under her left armpit, which once showed itself through a wet T-shirt in one of Cait’s photos, but it’s quite hard to understand what exactly it depicts.

Net worth and salary

According to authoritative sources, Cait’s current net worth is estimated to be over $1 million as of mid-2024. As she continues to work hard as an actress and singer and songwriter, her wealth is expected to rise.
