College of Education, Health and Human Sciences graduate student in Kinesiology, Recreation, and Sport Studies (KRSS), Kaylee Couvillion, is jumping over more than her classes this semester. Well, she has really been jumping for most of her life.
Kaylee is a multi-award winning World Jump Rope Federation Champion, winning individual or team world championships in all but one of the past seven years. Her talent has taken her places she never imagined and has led to helping start a business, pursue a profession as a professor, and to her future husband.
Kaylee’s jumping career started in Baton Rouge at the age of ten and as shared in this article in The Advocate, jumping has changed Kaylee’s life. Through the sport, Kaylee has been able to share her experiences and help other kids gain the same benefits.
