Dr. Kyle earned her combined MD/MBA at Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine, and completed her Internal Medicine residency at the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center in Richmond, Virginia where she was named Outstanding Senior Resident.
She first moved to North Carolina in 1999 to attend the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. At UNCW, she graduated summa cum laude and earned the highest leadership award presented by the Department of Student Affairs. She began her career working in the Emergency Department at Duke University, which is where she learned to appreciate the importance of healthcare coverage and access to basic primary and preventive care. This is also where she first learned the importance of providing Veteran-specific healthcare through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
After residency, Dr. Kyle stayed on as teaching faculty to train medical residents at the VA, where she cared for Veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom in a post-deployment clinic. There she helped train the next generation of physicians to address the myriad of physical and mental health challenges facing our returning heroes. After near tragically losing patients to delays in care within the VA system, she committed to bring her experience and expertise to Capitol Hill to defend our Veterans.
Dr. Kyle’s Decision to Run
She returned to North Carolina in 2012 and currently lives in Kure Beach. Though she loves clinical medicine, she is deeply concerned with the fact that both patients and healthcare providers find it increasingly difficult to navigate unwieldy systems that put profits over people. She felt drawn to fulfill the moral and ethical obligation of her Hippocratic Oath by advocating to save our healthcare, which then became a decision to run for Congress. Now, with a full-time commitment to becoming your next Congresswoman, she’s on call 24/7 — not just for her patients, but for every member of North Carolina’s 7th Congressional District and all Americans.
