Kylie is a graduate of Von Lee International School of Aesthetics, the nation’s first school devoted exclusively to esthetics, where she had the privilege to learn under school founder and industry legend, Carole Walderman. While skincare may be her number one passion Kylie knew she had more to offer so she returned to school for her massage education. Attending the Anne Arundel Community College's Massage Therapy program allowed her to continue working while in school and she stared here at the Keel in 2007. After graduating from the program and receiving her national and state certifications Kylie was able to start training under the widely experienced staff at the Keel, Alexa, Michele, David, and Kelly. Many of you may remember getting discounted "Newbie" massages while she was in training. Well she's not in training anymore. With over 6 years of experience working on some of the toughest bodies Annapolis has to offer Kylie has developed her own holistic approach to wellness and loves having the flexibility of both treating your skin and your muscles. Wanting to further pursue her love for medical esthetics Kylie now splits her time between the Keel and O'Donnell Vein and Medical Spa, granting her access to state of the art equipment and physician grade peels and products. Needless to say her love of her field and her knowledge has tripled, and her skin has never looked better. If you haven't had one of her Fassages you are missing out!
