Kylee received her Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Utah Valley University and received her Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of Utah. While in graduate school, Kylee discovered her love for working with the pediatric population. She participated in various pediatric fieldwork placements, which included time spent at an outpatient clinic, nonprofit school for adults with 18-32 with autism spectrum disorders/other neurodiversities, and in a school setting. Since graduating, Kylee has spent the last three years working in the school setting. During this time, Kylee had the opportunity to work with ages 3-21 years old with a variety of diagnoses, including autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, ADHD, learning disabilities, sensory processing disorders, traumatic brain injury, visual-motor impairments, and overall developmental delay. She has experience performing evaluations using a variety of assessments, conducting in-person and telehealth treatment sessions, and collaborating with the case team; including parents, school psychologists, teachers, physical therapists, school administration, and speech language pathologists. Kylee understands the importance of a collaborative relationship with the child’s parents/caregivers, client-centered treatment sessions that are motivating for the child, and the effectiveness of therapy in a natural environment.
Kylee recently moved to North Carolina from Utah with her husband and two-year-old twin daughters. She enjoys exploring and traveling to new places, being physically active (e.g. going to the gym, playing pickleball, playing softball, hiking), playing board games, relaxing by watching a good tv show and spending time with family and friends.
