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 two adorable nieces and one handsome & 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 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 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, Dominican Republic, and almost all 50 of the states. I love music--singing, writing songs, playing the piano, and listening to other musicians. 6 years ago I co-founded the nonprofit INSPIRE: music. service.hope and INSPIRE has expanded to include INSPIRE Entertainment, our Music, Dance, Theater, Preschool, Studios in 2 locations (Mesa/ Gilbert, AZ).
