Kaicee Postler, Ph.D.
UIRC Board Member
Kaicee Postler is an Assistant Professor of Family Science in the Behavioral Science Department at Utah Valley University. She earned a Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She also holds a Master of Science degree from UNC Greensboro and a Bachelor of Science degree from Westminster College. Kaicee's research interests include the connections between marital quality and health outcomes, including both mental (e.g., anxiety) and physical (e.g., infertility, pregnancy loss) health.
Kaicee and her husband have personally experienced the emotional and physical pains of pregnancy loss, infertility, and fertility treatments. Because the topic of infertility has connections to her professional and personal life, she couldn’t be more excited to promote the mission of the UIRC and find ways to support couples and individuals, like her, who often struggle silently from infertility. She is excited to engage with education, research, supportive services, and advocacy efforts regarding infertility in Utah.
Kaicee is from Salt Lake City and enjoys spending time in the mountains, at the beach, traveling, crocheting, listening to music, and spending time with her family and dog.
