Kye’s work as a Leadership Consultant begins with her unshakeable optimism and a strong belief in people: in their ability to change and grow, in their good intentions, and in their ability to problem-solve when faced with tough situations. Kye brings warmth, enthusiasm, and authenticity to helping leaders build effective teams and cultures based on trust and shared purpose.
After earning her bachelor’s degree in communication and sociology at DePauw University, Kye spent her early career in higher education administration, eventually earning her master’s degree in Education Policy and Organizational Leadership. Since joining ADVISA in 2015, she’s become a certified EQ (Emotional Intelligence) practitioner and has coached and trained hundreds of leaders to recognize and self-manage their caution areas while identifying and leveraging their strengths.
Kye lives in Indianapolis with her husband Ryan, two sons, and one very anxious dog. Her “happy places” are her yoga mat (she’s a certified yoga instructor (RYT-200) and has a daily practice), her stand-up paddle board in Northern Michigan, any beach, and creek-stompin’-hikes in Marrott Park with Ryan and her two boys. Nothing stirs her soul more than planning a trip and exploring new cities, cultures, food, and people.
