A father of a two-year-old boy who he has sole custody of, Kyle is also a veteran of four deployments to OEF and OIF as an infantryman with 2/75 Ranger Regiment. Kyle’s service as an Army Ranger in Iraq and Afghanistan allowed him to see the effects of people ravaged by sickness.

Passionate about public health, particularly infectious disease transmission Kyle plans to use his degree to continue service to his country and others, increasing the quality of life here at home, and hopefully across the globe.
