I’m Kylie, the manager of marketing & development for Hill Country Conservancy, a nonprofit land trust committed to preserving the natural beauty and open spaces of the Texas Hill Country – forever. Before deciding to devote my career to nonprofits, I attended Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa to study journalism & political science. In 2012, my love for nonprofits started with my first internship in advocacy & organizing. From there I moved to marketing & communication and eventually to nonprofit development. After moving to Austin in 2014, I worked for a local children’s & domestic violence shelter, but it wasn’t long until I fell in love with hiking on the Violet Crown Trail – so much so that I applied and eventually was hired to work for HCC.

Most of my free time is spent in the great outdoors. I love exploring the many trails Texas has to offer with my pup, Roxie, and spending weekends camping or heading to the lake.
