Her M.S. (Food Science and Nutrition) and Ph.D. (Food Science, Meats emphasis) degrees were received from Colorado State University in 1987 and 1991, respectively. Following post-doctorate work at the University of Kentucky and the University of Minnesota, Dr. Boyle made the move to Kansas.

Dr. Boyle works primarily in Extension (0.9 appointment) to enhance the quality and safety of meat products and to provide scientific and technical assistance to meat processors and trade associations.
