meet kylee

Kylee McGrane-Zarnoch is the Founder and Executive Director of A Moment of Magic Foundation, a mental health advocate, and content creator that has amassed more than 100,000 followers across social media.

In December 2014, Kylee had the idea to dress up like a princess and visit local children's hospitals. After her first visit to a 202 bed hospital in New York, she fell in love and A Moment of Magic was born.

After a little bit of magic in November 2016, A Moment of Magic's story went viral, grossing more than 65 million views worldwide. The international attention helped the organization gain the momentum needed to make Kylee's dream come true and allow A Moment of Magic to be adopted by Colleges and Universities across the United States.

Today, A Moment of Magic has engaged more than 1,300 college student volunteers from more than 30 colleges and universities to partner with 300+ hospitals and NPO's to provide creative programming to more than 100,000 children.

Under the banner of A Moment of Magic, Kylee has spoken as a business, female empowerment, volunteerism and advocacy expert for companies and organizations including Get Your Play Online, the American Red Cross, and Penn State University. She has been featured in over 100 international publications including the New York Post, USA Today, CNN, and The Today Show. Kylee is a President George H.W. Bush Daily Point of Light Honoree, a Sara Blakely and Spanx Red Backpack Fund Recipient, and New York Yankees HOPE Week Honoree.


Today, Kylee uses her platform to advocate for causes she cares most about, including mental health, the power of creativity and vulnerability, and chasing your dreams (especially the ones that seem impossible). She creates spaces where others can feel empowered to understand their vulnerability as a superpower rather than a weakness, to craft and share your story, and to dream big dreams and chase them fearlessly. 

Kylee Lauren McGrane is the Founder and Executive Director of A Moment of Magic Foundation, a President George H.W. Bush Daily Point of Light Honoree, a Sara Blakely and Spanx Red Backpack Fund Recipient, a New York Yankees HOPE Week Honoree, and an AERIE Real Changemaker.  She has been featured on The Today Show, USA Today, Elite Daily, and more. She currently lives in New York City with her fiancé and their delightfully fluffy puppy Riggins.

Rumor has it, she has never refused a cup of coffee in her life.
