She is from Hutchinson, Kansas. She has interned in collections with the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, as well as at the Reno County Museum in Hutchinson. She also held a curatorial internship with the Oz Museum in Wamego, KS. She is currently the student archive assistant at the Dole Institute of Politics. She hopes to work as a collections manager at a history museum, and one day become a museum director. Over the summer, Kylie interned at the Lawrence Public Library as an intern through the Hall Center for Humanities. During her time there, she scanned several hundred postcards from a local resident's collection, all focusing on different aspects of Lawrence. She learned how to use metadata to create a digital collection of the scans. Through this collection, she created an online exhibit which is going to go live in October of 2016.
