Kylie spent her childhood exploring the desert in rural southern Arizona where she grew up. She earned her B.S. in Biology with an emphasis in wildlife management and ecology at Northern Arizona University, where she discovered her passion for teaching others about science and nature. After graduating, she moved to San Francisco and then eventually made her way down to the central coast and decided it was the place for her.
Since living in San Luis Obispo County, Kylie has taken advantage of kayaking at all beautiful beaches and exploring the local hiking trails. She also enjoys crafting, concerts, and traveling with friends.
