After graduating with a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering, Kayci attended the University of San Diego to study social innovation. There she realized that although social innovation might seem like a vastly different field than chemical engineering, her strong engineering background and problem-solving skills were much needed in the social impact space. Kayci decided that she wanted to work on solving the world's most pressing challenges as a result. People around the world are denied basic human rights such as clean water and health care, and many experience various forms of violence. Meanwhile, climate change threatens the future of the planet. Kayci is passionate about doing her part to eliminate the needless suffering in the world.
