A piano player since the age of 8, she passionately plays for loved ones and supports the love of music by going to choral concerts semesterly, as well as supporting the music recitals hosted by her old piano studio.
In her sophomore year at Minnesota State University, Mankato, Caylie pursues a Bachelor of Nursing. Aspiring to become a Registered Nurse focusing on hospice care and providing important palliative care to those within the communities of Mankato.
Caylie's social impact initiative "Hospice Care= Comfort CARE", provides necessary education about hospice care and shows people that the word hospice is not something to fear, but rather to be educated about and to appreciate the care it provides. As someone who once was terrified of the word hospice, after seeing her grandfather being admitted to hospice and not fully understanding what was going on with him medically, Caylie is now committed to showing people of all ages that death is just another part of life and is something to be talked about openly.
Caylie works as a Certified Nurse's Assistant in a long-term care facility, with hospice nurses to create a comfortable environment where the stigma of death is not something to fear.
Outside of the nursing field, Caylie is highly involved with her sorority Alpha Sigma Alpha, working alongside 37 other women to host philanthropy events that benefit ASA Foundation, Special Olympics, Dinner for Heroes, Adopt-A-Highway, as well as Girls on The Run.
When she has the chance, she goes home and visits her family. She loves spending time with all of her family's pets (cats, dogs, turkeys, and chickens). Spending time on the water is the highlight of her Minnesota summers, traveling with her family to various lakes across the state and kayaking, fishing, and more!
