Kaylé has left The Education Trust for her next adventure. Though she is no longer at Ed Trust, we maintain this bio page as a record of the wonderful work she contributed while with us.


As the development assistant for Ed Trust, Kaylé supports the development team in its efforts to build the organization’s relationships with our supporters and to foster a culture of development across the organization. Prior to joining The Education Trust team, Kaylé worked as Assistant Area Director for AIPAC’s Dallas office and then in the public affairs department of a trade association. While in Dallas, she became active in education reform at a local level as part of an organized effort to encourage parents to vote in local school board elections. Kaylé is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism and minored in French and international and area studies.
