Upon returning home to Wyoming, Kylie has since dedicated herself to education and Wyoming history. She is a recipient of the 2021 Homsher Research Grant from the Wyoming State Historical Society for her work on Wyoming women’s suffrage.
Kylie uses her research to teach classes with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Casper College, as well as, give public presentations on Wyoming history including the State Flag and woman suffrage.

Long shrouded in controversy, Dr. Grace Raymond Hebard has largely been forgotten in Wyoming today. Those who know of her, largely know of the villainized version presented by the generations of historians who came after her. Kylie’s current research investigates the controversies and contributions of Dr. Grace Raymond Hebard, in hopes of restoring her humanity and shining a light on the work she did for the state of Wyoming.
