Hi! My name is Kaylee Willingham! Although born in Florida, I was raised in Kentucky and North Carolina. We moved back and forth from KY to NC four times! My parents have been in the ministry for over 20 years, so I moved a lot growing up. I was always the “new kid.” Because I experienced that as a child, I want to make kids feel welcome and excited to learn and grow friendships. Music is a strong passion of mine. I have been singing since I was two years old, performing on stage and singing at church. Working with children is also a passion of mine. I have been a counselor for an afterschool program at the YMCA for 3 years and was promoted to Director this past year. I am so excited to start my journey here at Lead Academy!
