Advisor Comments (Helen Kraus)

Focused and hard-working – these are the best words to describe Kylie as a student. She devours information, learning it completely. My best memories of Kylie are meetings where she had an agenda of topics for us to discuss and questions to be answered.  Never to be deterred from exploration of career possibilities, Kylie sought out and took a wide array of classes examining ornamental, edible, and public horticulture. Kylie wants to explore graduate school in the future and will do great wherever she chooses to focus her efforts.
