Kyle has worked in mental health promotion and anti-violence advocacy since 2010, with a special interest in improving outreach and accessibility for marginalized and underserved communities. He has worked on several major pilot projects including Green Dots Across the Bluegrass, the Domestic Violence and Child Welfare Connection Program, and the Safe and Supported LGBTQ+ Victim Outreach Program. After several years of working in direct services with sexual assault, domestic violence, human trafficking, and hate crime survivors, he shifted gears and taught himself computer science. As a software developer and data scientist, he applies his background in mental health to areas of clinical research, public health, and neuroscience research studies. Kyle also uses his background in information security and working with domestic violence survivors to consult on issues of high-tech stalking and digital safety planning. He is prone to “Jimmy Neutron brain blasts” and occasionally needs to be reminded that this meeting was supposed to end 15 minutes ago.
