Kayla was first introduced to SLU through the Youth Pastor Summit in Orlando in 2008 and was so impressed that she attended every year since that point. During her college years, she also attended the Lift Tour with her church group while serving as the student ministry intern. She has dedicated much of her life to student ministry and is thrilled to continue that journey with the SLU team!
Most of Kayla's ministry experience was developed through FUGE Camps. She worked camp every summer from 2011 to 2017 and also spent a year as a Program Specialist in the LifeWay Students office in Nashville, Tennessee.
Kayla grew up in the small town of Okeechobee, Florida where there are four cows for every person. Much of her time was spent riding horses and playing sports. She went to college at the University of Central Florida and graduated with a degree in Biology and Sociology. She has worked in the school system as well as various ministry roles within the church. Kayla now resides in Orlando, Florida and can most likely be found paddle boarding on the weekends.
