Constituent Services Representative, US House of Representatives-Congressman Conor Lamb
Kyli is a Constituent Services Representative in the Office of Congressman Conor Lamb. She acts as a liaison between federal agencies and the constituents of Pennsylvania’s 17th Congressional District. Her primary case portfolio displays work with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, Department of State, and Department of Homeland Security. Previously, she served as the Donor Relations Coordinator at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank assisting with the redevelopment of the Major Gift and Planned Giving programs. Kyli is no stranger to grassroots organizing and activism. After volunteering on multiple local, state, and national campaigns, she became a field organizer on Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign in 2016. She served as the Young Democrats of Westmoreland County’s Secretary, and in 2018 was the youngest woman ever elected to Democratic State Committee to represent Westmoreland County. Kyli is a 2012 graduate of Connellsville Area High School and a 2016 graduate of Saint Vincent College where she double-majored in History and Politics. For her senior thesis, she researched the U.S. Federal Theatre Project and its role in providing access to art, especially in communities with a high concentration of youth with low socioeconomic status. She has witnessed first-hand that students can lack access to better education and resources just because of their zip code, and is working to change that. Kyli has been the director for the Yough Intermediate Middle School theatre program since 2016. With no funding from the school district, she successfully works to provide an accessible and educational theatre experience by producing the highest-quality musicals at no mandatory cost to the students or their families. She plans to use New Leaders Council to strengthen her policy and community organizing skills to advocate for middle school theatre programs in rural school districts.
