Born and raised in Mandeville, Louisiana, Kaylee comes to Lafayette after graduating from Southeastern Louisiana University with a Bachelors Degree in Communication. She made her first television debut at The Southeastern Channel, where she was a reporter, anchor, director and producer for their award winning news segment, Northshore News. There Kaylee won various awards for her work including, second place in the nation for “Best Overall Television News Magazine”, and first place in the nation for “Best Television News Feature Story”.
