ADMIN TEAM

KYLIE COLE

CEO/FOUNDER

 Kylie is the brains behind the Capes & Crowns Foundation. The idea came to her on an airplane heading to her very first comiccon in 2015.   What started as a simple idea, written down on 3 napkins and a barf bag,  has blossomed into an ever-growing organization, that has provided 1000 sessions in the last 3 years. 

Kylie is a wife and mother of 4 wonderful boys that make life so fun and exciting. There is no shortage of superheroes and Starwars in her house!  She loves all things Disney, Marvel, StarWars and much more. She’s still waiting for her invitation to join the Avengers. 

 

 

 

STEPHANIE YOUNG

CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER 

Stephanie, our COO, began with Capes & Crowns as one of our primary photographers and editors since the beginning of the National Tour in 2018. Since then, she’s jumped in head first and has become an incredible asset to our team as the COO. Stephanie, wife and mom of 3 awesome kids, is a major Whovian, Game of Thrones junkie, and coffee addict. She’s still mad that she has yet to receive her Hogwarts acceptance letter. 

TIFFANY GOLDADER

PROGRAM DIRECTOR

 

Tiffany, our Program Director is the first person you’ll interact with when you apply for a session! She has been with the organization since the very beginning in various capacities and has found her niche as our Program Director. Tiffany is a major Whovian and fan of all things wibbly wobbly and timey wimeyHer daughter, Nora, also received her own session – as a Paleontologist!
