Kaylin earned her doctorate in social and organizational psychology from Columbia University and then specialized in nonprofit research, team process, and organization effectiveness consulting. She grew up in Minnesota and lived in New York City and Portland, OR before settling in Boulder in 2005.

Kaylin and Kimala are also the grateful parents of three brave and bold adolescents who make every day an adventure.
