Kyler is from Georgia and grew up in a small, rural community where he worked at his grandfather’s hardware store. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a degree in microbiology, Kyler worked for a year with the US Department of Agriculture where he studied antimicrobial resistance with bacteria such as Salmonella.
Kyler has served on the Honor Council with his medical school for all four years, has been actively engaged with his church, and has been recognized for his outstanding academic and clinical performance with induction into both the AOA and Gold Humanism Honor Societies. He has always been interested in returning to the community in which he grew up, and although originally thought this would entail a career in general medicine is now considering ways in which he could give back in the field of Hematology/Oncology by providing subspecialized care to patients in a rural and underserved area.
In his free time, Kyler is interested in Coen brothers films, poetry, and homebrewing.
