Kylie is a first-year student in the Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling program who has served as a yoga and meditation teacher and a reiki practitioner for the last four years. With a love of learning, she hopes to inspire joy for the creative and contemplative approach to academia here at Naropa. As someone whos experienced burnout while completing her BS in contemplative studies and environmental science, she understands the pressure we can place on ourselves to do well and encourages taking a kind approach with ourself. Kylie believes that even when you may not think you have the answers, within each of us there lay potential, and as a coach she views her role as empowering you to see your own academic potential. She encourages students to find a balance that works for them as they move through school. In her free time Kylie enjoys hiking, running, roller skating, skiing, playing chess, and spending time with the dogs she takes care of as a pet sitter.
