About Kyla Palmer

As a New York native, MileSplit NY has long beenone of my most frequented sites. (I won't share how many times my teachers caught me scouring the rankings and results pages during the school day). After graduating from Tappan Zee High School in 2014 as a 2xNY State Champion, All-American, and NXN Individual qualifier, I joined the Villanova XC and Track teams while earning my Bachelor's Degree in Communications. I then completed my eligibility at Mount Saint Mary's University while earning an MBA. Following Grad School, I moved to Delaware in January 2020 and am now in my tenth season as a coach at the Tatnall School. I currently serve as the Executive Assistant to the Head of School at Tatnall and run a small marketing company on the side, Roots Marketing Solutions. Competitive running is still a massive part of my life, and I aim to qualify for the Track and Field Olympic Trials next year. I can't wait to dive back into the New York running scene this spring with MileSplit NY to share YOUR story.
