Kylie grew up in a non-hunting family in central Illinois and, following her love of the outdoors and wildlife, pursued a degree in zoology from Colorado State University. Working for various agencies studying northern goshawks, elk, feral pigs and wildlife diseases led her to pick up hunting as an adult. During her time in Colorado, she also volunteered for the Colorado BHA chapter as a regional director, working underneath the board of directors leading local BHA outreach and events. She now hopes to use her wildlife background, hunting experience and passion for conservation to influence and inspire the next generation as the new collegiate club coordinator. In particular, she is looking forward to increasing diversity in hunting and fishing, assisting with R3 initiatives, cultivating more conservationists, and growing the collegiate program as a whole. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, backpacking, climbing, snowboarding, yoga, drinking a good beer, working her way through all of Hank Shaw’s big game recipes, and learning anything new that involves being outdoors.
