She has sang on several of the group's biggest hits, and was voted number 13, 16, 13, 13, 21, 19, 11, and 12 in AKB48's General Elections. In 2017, she was chosen number 10 for her final participation, her highest ranking ever. Kitahara has also been a part of the AKB48 subgroup Not Yet since 2011.

Kitahara was born in the Aichi town of Ichinomiya. She finished 13th overall in AKB48's general election to decide the participants in its next single in 2009.

Kitahara made her voice acting debut in the anime series Gakk no Kowai Uwasa: Shin Hanako-san ga Kita!! on August 13, 2010.

On the first day of AKB48's 3-Tokyo-Dome concert series, August 24, 2012, the group announced a rearrangement, which moved Kitahara from Team B to Team K and making her a concurrent member of AKB48 and SKE48. On February 13, 2013, she made her debut with Team S. She was moved from Team S to Team KII, although she did not make her debut with the new team. SKE48 stated in April that Kitahara will be leaving the group, leaving her exclusively with AKB48's Team K.

Kitahara starred in the Japanese horror film Joker Game, which was released on December 22, 2012.

On August 21, 2017, she confirmed her departure from NGT48. On April 18, 2018, she received her diploma.
