Q: How can we continue to follow your story?

A: I write for the Rolling Without Limits blog and have a Facebook page all about my life with an owner trained mobility service dog who is amazing and goofy! It’s called Life with Surf

My service dog Surf

I grew up like a fairly average kid. I went to public school, I danced from age 3 to 24, the last 10 years of which I was on a competition team and I taught dance to children with physical disabilities. I then went to college where I earned a BS in special education with a concentration in communication science and disorders before becoming a licensed Speech language pathology assistant. I married my husband on a cruise ship in 2014 (my dream wedding), and we have a 4 year old German Shepherd named Surf who I trained by myself to be my service dog.

Kaylee is living proof that no matter what, you can live your dreams and have a fulfilling life with Spina Bifida. From dancing competitively to her successful career and marriage, she is certainly living her best life!
