Dr. Kylie is originally from Wisconsin and has been with the Balance Chicago family since 2019. Dr. Kylie was very athletic from a young age and because of this she wanted to be a physical therapist since the age of seven. She was a competitive gymnast and dancer and this fueled her love of the human body and muscles. In middle school, Dr. Kylie’s grandmother had a stroke that left her unable to walk. This event was the catalyst for her love of neurology and the brain. It showed her how important rehabilitation is in the recovery process, not just for the effect it has on the patient, but for the family as well.
