Hailing from from Jasper, Indiana, Kayce arrived at IU in the school of music, studying percussion and music education in 2002. She changed career paths following her sophomore year to study Informatics, pursue a career in design and continue teaching percussion in her free time. She carried a snare in the Marching Hundred drumline and played in a number of orchestras and ensembles during her time at IU. Kayce received her B.S. in Informatics (2006) and M.S. in Human-Computer Interaction Design (2008). Her husband, Aaron, is also from Jasper and received his M.S. in Bioinformatics at IU (2007). They planted their roots in Bloomington in 2008 and were married in 2009. Aaron brews really great beer on the weekends and at any given time, there are 2 or 3 different options on tap. In her free time, Kayce likes to explore craft breweries throughout the midwest, dabble in furniture restoration and teach private percussion lessons from her home. The Reed-Buechleins have two dogs, Sadie, a 10 year old Labradoodle and Wilco, a 4 year old “dog”. Sadie smiles on command and Wilco barks at you if you tell her what to do (she, ironically, will not comply).
