Kylie grew up in Los Angeles where she experienced the effects of environmental degradation and climate change firsthand. This experience brought her to UC Berkeley where she earned a B.S. in Environmental Science and a minor in Environmental Economics and Policy. While at UC Berkeley, she was involved in higher education advocacy and elections work, on both the university and national level, volunteering for Senator Warren’s campaign for President. She also wrote an honors thesis on the relationship between socioeconomic factors and the climate change denial in the United States.

Kylie supports the Social Policy & Politics and Economic programs, as well as the Executive Vice President for Policy. As a young queer woman, supporting these programs is very personal to her. Before joining Third Way, Kylie worked for For Our Future Action Fund, interned in the US House of Representatives for Congresswoman Barbara Lee, and interned for Environment America. In the future, Kylie hopes to pursue a Master’s degree in Public Policy and someday work on the Hill on environmental and health policy.

In her free time, Kylie enjoys baking bread and pastries, hiking in NOVA, and taking care of her many house plants. And she would like Pat to know that California is the best state in the country.
