Kaylin attended the University of Southern Indiana where she earned her bachelor's degree in Health Services with a concentration as an Occupational Therapy Assistant. She then worked as a neurorehabilitation Occupational Therapy Assistant and a Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Advocate in Florida. After 3 years, Kaylin moved to Nashville, TN to complete her master's degree in Occupational Therapy at Belmont University's MSOT Bridge Program. She continued her work with survivors of domestic and sexual assault during this time and became the first Occupational Therapy intern with the Mental Health Court of Rutherford County. Upon completion of graduate school, Kaylin accepted a position with the Recovery Court program as a Mental Health Court case manager while also providing OT services. Through this avenue, Kaylin was able to advocate for a full time OT position serving all of the Recovery Courts in Rutherford County. This is one of the first OT positions of its kind in the country.
Since then, Kaylin has started her own business, Mind The Gap Therapy & Consulting, with her husband Dakota, focusing on integrative mental health care for their community.
In addition to Mind The Gap, she is an Adjunct Professor at Nashville State Community College, involved in the Tennessee Occupational Therapy Association, sits on the Advisory Committee for Tennessee Wesleyan’s OT Program, Belmont University’s OT program, and South College’s OTA program, and works to promote mental health and occupational therapy through various organizations in her community
