She would like to eventually develop her own program which focuses on the prevention of gang violence. Kaley's interests include traveling, sports, modeling, health care and her family. She enjoys spending time laughing with her friends, working out at the gym and exploring the outdoors. She excels at snowboarding, dancing and event planning.
