Kylie is a Colorado local and proud of it. She did take a brief sojourn to Tempe, AZ to get degrees from Arizona State University in Sustainability and Design Management. Kylie cemented her love for vibrant Colorado communities and their development when she interned at the Department of Local Affairs in the summer of 2015. She was hooked on providing assistance to communities all over the state so she came to work for DCI as their Communications VISTA and then completed a year as a VISTA Leader overseeing DCI's AmeriCorps VISTA program. Her current role is Rural Outreach Manager and VISTA Program Supervisor. Kylie manages the Colorado Challenge Accelerator Program, and she loves working with our rural communities to turn challenges into solutions.
