Kaylea Chrisman


Kaylea Chrisman has loved working with kids for as long as she can remember. Some of her first jobs were babysitter and summer camp counselor. To this day, you can still find her at the kids table during holiday dinners with her family.

Born and raised and still living in Castle Shannon, Kaylea is the middle child of three sisters, and the first in her family to work in the medical field. She earned her BS in Health Sciences and her Master’s in Physician Assistant Studies at Duquesne University.

Kaylea spends a lot of her free time reading — she’ll never turn down a good book! — and exercising, either in the gym or all around Pittsburgh. She especially loves walking in South Park.

Kaylea’s favorite places to “play” in Pittsburgh are the Carnegie Science Center and the Pittsburgh Zoo. The giraffes are her favorites, but she loves the lions and tigers too.

As a child, her favorite toys were Beanie Babies and Build-a-Bears.

Kaylea is recently engaged. She’s known her fiancé, Adam, since she was in 10th grade.
