Kylie works at the United Way of Salt Lake, a nonprofit dedicated to changing the odds so every child has a chance to succeed in school and life. Previously, she worked with the Waterford Research Institute’s UPSTART program, a nonprofit that focuses on kindergarten readiness for Utah children. Kylie loves people, connection, climbing, being outside, learning and teaching. She especially loves the connection forged between people when they’re doing things they love in awe inspiring environments! She studied anthropology and the Spanish language at Utah State University. Kylie has been climbing and canyoneering for 14 years, and has worked as a coach and belay instructor in Utah climbing gyms for 5 years. I spent a summer as a zipline and mountain bike tour guide in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee.
