Kyna graduated from University of Colorado Boulder with a degree in Mathematics and also has an MBA from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. It was during college she learned to play poker.
During a work conference in Las Vegas, she started playing again and there she remembered how much she loved the game. She played few years as a recreational player and only started to take it seriously when she was out of work due to the pandemic.
