Kyle Lane is the administrative assistant at Sound Discipline, which requires wearing many hats! From data entry to program event logistics to fundraising and development support, Kyle is involved in many different areas of the organization and is eager to help out where needed in support of the team.
Kyle has had a passion for social justice work from a young age. She has volunteered at her local crisis hotline, been a private caretaker, and interned at the Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights in Glasgow, Scotland. After a stint in the technology sector as a customer service administrator, Kyle returned to social justice work, where her heart truly lies, leading her to Sound Discipline.
Kyle has a BS in sociology and an MA in public policy, focusing on racial equality from the University of Edinburgh. She hails originally from the south Bay Area and currently resides in south Seattle. If she is not working on grant writing aspirations, you can find her on a beautiful PNW hike, doing a Yoga with Adriene video or hunting for good Mexican food.
