Kylie was raised in Arizona and Southern California. She graduated from Colorado College as a pre-med Religion major, then moved to New York in 2009 to pursue her medical degree at NYU School of Medicine.

Between her third and fourth years of medical school, she earned her Masters degree in the Bioethics program, focusing her thesis on organ donation in the emergency room. Kylie is currently an Emergency Medicine resident at SUNY Downstate / Kings County Hospital.
