For five seasons, DIY Network’s Rescue Renovation showcased Kayleen’s skills and wit as she’s swept in and saved almost one hundred ill-fated home renovations, from an NFL running back’s kitchen to a coalmine-turned-man-cave.

But nails aren’t the only thing you’ll find Kayleen hammering. She’s an ardent advocate of trade careers and education, long seen as inferior to traditional four-year college degrees and white-collar jobs. Her goal is to shed light on the rising demand for trade professionals that’s outpacing vocational training – and to help restore America’s respect for the trades in the process.
