President, School of Law
Kyle grew up in Texas, studied at Abilene Christian University and graduated in 2003 with a degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology.
He spent 9 years working as a project manager and in international business before returning to law school. He is currently a third-year law student at Regent University School of Law. Kyle has been married for nine years to an incredible lady, Jenny Carter, and has a very active three-year old son named Caleb.
At Regent he has been involved with the Alternative Dispute Resolution Board, Regent Journal of International Law, and International Law Society. Kyle was called to law school by the injustice he witnessed in the international communities that he lived and worked in. He wants to leverage his business acumen to advocate for those marginalized by the law by enabling businesses to review their working practices and enable non-profits to function efficiently to achieve their mission and objectives.
As COGS President, Kyle’s four main objectives are to: build stronger community among students, faculty, and staff; develop sustainable methods to enhance continuity in students organizations; find opportunities to invest into the graduate student body and further the fulfillment of Regent’s mission by encouraging each graduate student to take personal responsibility for their spiritual, emotional, academic and professional development and those of their colleagues.
