Kylie started rowing in her sophomore year of high school, having never heard of rowing before. She quickly fell in love with the sport, discovering it as a place to go to relieve stress and be completely herself. During her high school years, Kylie rowed for Methuen High, Essex Rowing, and Greater Lawrence Rowing. Competing in races such as HOCR, Head of the Fish, IDR, and the Royal Canadian Henley convinced Kylie that rowing was a sport she wanted to continue with into her college career.
Kylie entered Merrimack College on a D1 rowing scholarship where she is currently studying Public Health and Psychology. During her college career to date, she has attended Clemson University for an annual spring training week, as well as competing in the Dad Vail Regatta, NE10 Challenge, and the Knecht Cup.
Having “lived” the collegiate rowing experience, Kylie will be a valuable resource in bringing her up-to-date knowledge to GLR athletes seeking to pursue that same path. “My love of and commitment to the sport gives me confidence that I will be able to provide a highly productive and healthy space for athletes to grow and achieve at progressively higher levels of challenge.” says Kylie.
When Kylie is not out on the water, you can usually find her biking outdoors, playing with her dog ‘Mackenzie’, or one of her four rats: ‘Onion, Sage, Lola & Asia’.
