Kayleigh was born in Boston and raised in rural Connecticut. Her parents met while in a production of HMS Pinafore, so falling in love with the theater was inevitable! Her home was filled with music, and she took every opportunity to act, sing, and dance throughout her childhood.
At the age of 18, Kayleigh moved to New York City to pursue her BFA in Drama at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. She began her training at the Playwrights Horizons Theater School, diving into the beautiful world of collaboration, the well-rounded theater artist, and creating original work. Kayleigh then traveled to London to study Shakespeare in Performance at the renowned Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts during her junior year. She then spent her last year at NYU returning to her musical theater roots at the New Studio on Broadway.
Kayleigh now lives in New York, and hopes to continue to make challenging, meaningful theater while riding her bike, reading books, and petting small dogs.
