Marketing and Communications Director, Visual Media
Kyle was born in Dallas, TX, but grew up in Upper St. Clair, PA where she graduated from high school. She attended college at Maryville College in Maryville, TN, majoring in Sign Language Interpreting, but later transferred to the University of Tennessee, where she majored in Deaf Education. Kyle has 2 sons, Mark and Dan, and 3 stepsons, Jodie, Derek and Shane. Kyle and husband Roger have a total of 8 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren, with another grand? on the way! They live very happily in the countryside in Stanly County, NC. Kyle and Roger have several cats . She is teased about being the Crazy Cat Lady at work, though her cat population has dwindled over the years. Kyle and Roger have 4 inside cats and 3 outdoor cats. Their white German Shepherd, Kenna, has some big paws to fill, but will eventually go just about everywhere Kyle goes, including fishing, camping and photographing.
Photography is just one of her passions, and she is on the TEAM for annual Grandfather Mountain photography events. Kyle is a volunteer for Waterfall Keepers of North Carolina which cleans up and provides quarterly trail and waterfall maintenance reports for "her" waterfalls, Rufus Morgan Falls and Mooney Falls, which she shares with her best friend, Melissa. She loves to play the piano, quilt, kayak, knit (aka collecting yarn) and hike, as well. She's also recently started sewing dresses for one of her granddaughters. Kyle ran AHS’s Northside office from 1996 until 2001 when that office was closed and she came to the main hospital to work as a Veterinary Nurse. She has since added the duties of Marketing, Communications, Social Media Director, Photographer and Videographer – duties she also enjoys! Kyle loves AHS – She says the people she works with are great – they have become like family to her. She feels the practice works really hard to provide the best of care to the pets AND clients we serve. Always a dog lover, Kyle has more recently become an avid cat fan (out of necessity), as well. She says she can’t imagine her life without some kind of dog or cat in it.
