Kaylee is the founder and creative designer at Kaylee's Kards. Kaylee has Cerebral Palsy, a congenital disorder that often affects coordination, muscle function, sight, speaking, and swallowing. Although this condition has presented challenges for Kaylee, this enthusiastic, ambitious, and gregarious 15-year old entrepreneur has never let it stop her from achieving everything she has ever set her mind to. It was Kaylee's dream to create a company that allowed her to utilize her creativity to bring happiness to others. Through Kaylee's Kards, she hopes to inspire others, whether they have a disability or not, that anything is possible.
In addition to designing and running her card business, Kaylee is on the diploma track to graduate with full high school requirements - rather than a certificate - and competes in three Special Olympic sports: soccer, swimming, and bowling. Kaylee also enjoys dancing hula with Hālau I Ka Wēkiu, a world-renowned hula school in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Kaylee's mission also includes giving back to the organizations and communities that have supported her throughout her journey. She continues to donate $1 from every pack of cards sold to Shriners Hospital for Children. Kaylee was once a patient there, and she hopes her contributions can help make other kid's lives better.
