After the 2005-06 smainside-wpeason, both Kaitlyn and Andrew found themselves without partners.  After a successful tryout, Kaitlyn moved from Texas to Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario in August 2006 to skate with Andrew Poje under coach Paul McIntosh.  They had a stellar debut in their inaugural season, winning the bronze medal at the 2007 Canadian National Championships at the senior level and the World Junior Championships, and qualifying for the senior Worlds team where they finished 20th.

In January 2008, they relocated to Toronto to train under Shae-Lynn Bourne, the 2003 World Champion.  The following year, they shifted their training base to the Detroit Skating Club in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan  to receive additional coaching from Pasquale Camerlengo and Anjelika Krylova where they continue to train today.

In late 2012, Kaitlyn broke her fibula during a training session, which caused them to miss both the national championships and Four Continents.  Through dedication to her rehabilitation, Kaitlyn returned to the ice and the team finished fifth at the 2013 World Championships. 

In their career, they have won eight medals on the Grand Prix series and qualified for the Final three times.  They are six-time Canadian medalists and the 2010 Four Continents Champions.  After narrowly missing the chance to compete at the 2010 Olympics, they represented Canada at the 2014 Olympic Games where they finished seventh.  They are two-time medalists at the World Championships, winning silver in 2014 and bronze in 2015. 

After a fifth place finish at the 2016 World Championships, Kaitlyn and Andrew added reknowned coach and choreographer Nikolai Morozov to their coaching team.
