For nearly a decade, Kadyn has dedicated her personal and professional time to elevating the causes she believes in. From statewide coalition-building within the LGBTQ+ community to one-on-one client services for the homeless population of Sioux Falls, she has spent years advocating on behalf of marginalized and vulnerable communities.
She has also seen her family experience marginalization firsthand. Over the past twenty-five years, Kadyn's younger brother, Micah, has used a wheelchair to navigate the world. She grew up watching her parents advocate on his behalf for accessible services, and this instilled in her a deep sense of justice and a drive to create equity wherever possible. This is just one of the reasons she feels called to serve as a state legislator; to create better government policies for people who need them the most.
