Kayla joined KRQE News 13 as an anchor and reporter in December 2012.
Growing up in a suburb of Houston Kayla spent many of her days onstage performing in musicals and plays. She pursued classical vocal performance to Boston University where she fell in love with a different kind of storytelling: journalism. Kayla graduated from BU with a Bachelor of Science degree in broadcast journalism and a concentration in international relations.
During her studies she interned in several newsrooms including KTRK in Houston, WHDH in Boston and at GlobalPost. Kayla also spent time in Istanbul interning in public affairs with the U.S. Department of State.
Kayla started her journalism career in Salisbury, Md., where she reported for WBOC. She covered a wide range of news in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, ranging from environmental legislation affecting the Chesapeake Bay to the area's tourism industry. In the fall of 2012, and with hurricanes Irene and Sandy under her belt, Kayla packed up and headed for the Southwest.
When not working, Kayla loves traveling and exploring her new home in the Land of Enchantment. She enjoys spending time with her family, reading, cooking, hiking and practicing yoga.
