Kylie grew up on the West Coast and has recently moved to Virginia. She graduated from Concordia College (Portland, Oregon) with a BA in Music Performance (piano) and Business Administration. She has just received her Master of Arts in Music with a concentration in theory, from Portland State University. In 2013/2014 she also attended The Disney University in Anaheim, CA.
Kylie “fell in love with handbells” when she first began to ring in college. She served as Music Director (including handbells) for 5 years at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. She has rung with the prestigious group, “Bells of the Cascades” for a number of years, serving as secretary, treasurer and vice-president. She also served as a middle school band director, from 2013/14.
Kylie not only brings her musicality, passion and love of handbells, but also a wealth of knowledge about handbell technique and handbell repair.
