Kyle was raised in the Village of Rhinebeck deeply involved in the community, school sports, and family outings exploring the Hudson Valley. Grateful for the strong foundation that growing up in the village provided, and curious about the world beyond her small town, she ventured out west to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Finance from the University of Denver, and later a Master’s degree in International Affairs from the University of California, San Diego.
Prior to shifting her career focus to real estate, Kyle was dedicated to economic development. She served in the Peace Corps twice, first in Panama and later on in Peru. Stateside, she has worked in New York City in the financial inclusion sector before starting her own business specializing in socially conscious active travel to Peru and Patagonia, as well as the organizer of the Rhinebeck HV Full & Half Marathon.
Appreciative of the perspective gained from her travels, for Kyle, all roads have always led her back to the Hudson Valley. Her knowledge of the area and lifelong relationships perfectly intertwine to best serve the needs and interests of her community and those interested in making the Hudson Valley a part of their lives.
