Kyli started in the furniture industry, working in a boutique retail home store, while attending Virginia Commonwealth University. In the years following VCU, Kyli worked for a modern furniture store covering many roles: sales, office department manager, and buyer - giving her the opportunity to travel the world: France, Switzerland, Germany, China, and Vietnam!
After working retail for five years, she was given the opportunity to become a Brand Ambassador for American Leather, adding Copeland shortly after, creating a perfect fit of Made in America lines with similar qualities.
She has been interested in design from a young age, originally wanting to be an architect. Born in Wisconsin, she spent a fair amount of time in Illinois before moving to Virginia where she now calls home. After living in the city for many years, her husband twisted her arm to move somewhere with more space for their growing family. They now live in Ashland, VA on 15 acres of private land. They couldn't be happier!
When she's not working, Kyli enjoys working out, swimming, playing in the garden, listening to podcasts and music, or planning the next home renovation project.
