Kaylie was born and raised in Wichita, Ks. In 2018, she graduated from Bethany College (Lindsborg, Ks.) with a degree in Psychology, and Religion, with a minor in Sustainability. From there she moved to Berkeley, CA., to pursue her M.Div at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, where Kaylie completed her degree (with a concentration in Climate Justice and Faith) in 2021. After that, she moved back to Wichita, Ks, and has since joyfully accepted a call to be the pastor of Olsburg and Walsburg Lutheran Churches in Kansas!
Kaylie has a joy for all the good things in life: the bees, the earth, coffee, camping, books, flipping the tables of oppression, destroying the patriarchy… you know, all the simple things in life! When she is not reading and writing academic/pastor-y things, you can find her paddleboarding, hiking, baking, or reading some new thriller!
