“Kyle joined UWSN after four years as Senior Director of Fund Development for the 20,000-member National Society of Black Engineers, where she worked to develop and expand the base of donors, corporations and foundations that provided support for the Society’s mission.
Kyle’s belief in the power of community is deeply rooted by her broad life experience and the United Way. Born into an entrepreneurial, community-minded family in Indiana, she watched her father and grandfather lead local United Way campaigns and saw the central role that United Way played in the lives of their employees and the community.
After growing up in the family business, she ventured out to management posts in the tech sector then launched her own marketing company. With a passion for helping people, Kyle became the Director of U.S. Development for Mercy Ships International in 2007. Her success led to a three-year tenure as Director of Development for Cultural Tourism DC, supporting the organization’s promotion of the diverse culture and heritage of Washington, D.C. Next, she served as Vice President for Resource Development for United Way of the National Capital Area, where she led programs and initiatives that raised more than $30 million annually.
Kyle’s love of people and her passion for equal opportunity have guided her work throughout her professional career. As President and CEO of United Way of Southern Nevada, she will utilize these attributes and her extensive experience to guide the organization’s Community-based Agenda, overseeing its work with community partners to provide cradle-to-career support with demonstrated outcomes in early education, student success, post-secondary attainment and workforce supports. Always an involved citizen, Kyle continues to serve in numerous volunteer positions in the community.”
