Kylie Meyer, MSc

team_meyer_kylieKylie Meyer is a graduate student in Gerontology, who started at USC in fall of 2015 on a USC Provost Doctoral Fellowship. Her main interests are in elder abuse and long-term care services and supports. Prior to beginning at USC, she completed an MSc at the University of Southampton on a U.S. Fulbright. For her Masters thesis, Kylie conducted a qualitative study on access to information and advice among caregivers for older adults. This study revealed that caregivers with more experience were at an advantage navigating the social care system than those with less experience.

Kylie completed undergraduate studies at Kalamazoo College, where she studied anthropology/sociology and French. Her interest in aging began during her sophomore year, when she became involved with a state branch of the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care. She also completed internships with the Area Agency on Aging IIIA in Kalamazoo and Elder Law of Michigan.
