Kylee graduated from WCCMT in December 2022 and started practicing in May 2023. Kylee enjoys spending time with her family, which includes; her 6-year-old daughter, mother, brother, and two kitties.

Kylee also enjoys marathoning shows (often the same ones repeatedly) on Netflix whenever she can find the time. Kylee is passionate about her studies and looks forward to completing the last couple courses of her bachelor degree now that she has finished her massage therapy program.
