“My name is Kylee and I am passionate about life. I am the oldest of 8 children and have the most amazing parents ever. I have one adorable niece and one adorable & squishy nephew. I grew up in Oregon, moved my senior year of high school to Utah, then moved to San Diego, Boston, Arizona and recently moved back to Utah.
I went to BYU and got my BA in English (creative writing/Editing) and a minor in Linguistics. I love words and writing! There is something very powerful in putting words together and expressing human emotions. I love poetry, reading great novels, blogging, etc. I have an old typewriter I adore and like to type out letters now and again and seal them with wax. I am an author and avid reader. I love learning new words and can trace that back to my mom who has the most amazing vocabulary.
I also attended ASU and got my Masters in Social Work (emphasis in child & family therapy). I have always been drawn to the "punk kids" and absolutely love my job. I r left my job working as a Shadow (family therapist) at The ANASAZI Foundation to go work at the Oakley School (therapeutic boarding school) in Oakley, UT (between Kamas & Park City) and I now work at Telos U, a specialized program for young adults transitioning to higher levels of freedom and responsibility in Orem, Ut
When I am not with my family, hanging out with my friends, or working I absolutely love to travel. I have been to Egypt, Ghana, Italy, Mexico, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, Colombia, and almost all 50 of the states. I love music--singing, writing songs, playing the piano, and listening to other musicians. 5 years ago I co-founded a non-profit called INSPIRE: music. service.hope and we now have a business called INSPIRE Entertainment in 2 locations (Mesa/ Gilbert, AZ).
I am a huge Avengers fan (Captain America), I like straws, bridges, swinging on swings, and trains.
I love God and try to recognize His presence in my life. For Him I am indebted for my many blessings and tender mercies. All that I have and am is because of Him.
" I had become a new person, and those who knew the old person laughed at me. The only man who behaved sensibly was my tailor; he took my measure anew every time he saw me, whilst all the rest went in with their old measurements and expected them to fit me." (George Bernard Shaw, "Man and Superman". 1903)
