Kayne teamed up with O'Shea in April 2012. They finished 7th in their first trip to the U.S. Championships, in January 2013. Making their international debut, they won the silver medal at the 2013 International Challenge Cup.
In the 2013–14 season, Kayne/O'Shea won bronze medals at the U.S. Classic and Ice Challenge. After placing 6th at the 2014 U.S. Championships, they were assigned to the 2014 Four Continents, where they won the silver medal.
On July 28, 2014, Kayne underwent surgery due to a labral tear in her right hip. As a result, the pair withdrew from their 2014–15 Grand Prix assignments, the 2014 Cup of China and 2014 Rostelecom Cup. Kayne/O'Shea returned to competition at the 2014 Golden Spin of Zagreb, taking bronze at the ISU Challenger Series (CS) event. The pair stepped onto their first national podium at the 2015 U.S. Championships, where they were awarded the bronze medal.
Kayne/O'Shea began the 2015–16 season with gold at a CS event, the 2015 U.S. Classic. Making their Grand Prix debut, they placed 6th at the 2015 Skate America and 4th at the 2015 Rostelecom Cup. Another CS medal followed, bronze at the 2015 Golden Spin of Zagreb in December. In January, Kayne/O'Shea placed first in both segments at the 2016 U.S. Championships and won the gold medal by a margin of 14.85 points over defending champions Alexa Scimeca / Chris Knierim.
