Kayla serves as the project manager for Carolinas’ Academic Leadership Network (CALN). She began her time at Locke as an intern with the research department. Kayla is excited to continue working with Locke in this new capacity to ensure that students across the Carolinas can be in the driver’s seat of their education.

As the daughter of a 9/11 first responder, she was raised to put God, family, and country first. A proud Catholic Conservative, Kayla believes that the most meaningful change is made on the local level, and she is proud to contribute to solving the issues within our government today.

Kayla received her bachelor’s degree from the Catholic University of America, where she graduated with honors, majored in political science and pre-law, minored in philosophy, and received a specialization in the Social Sciences through the Honors College.

Her hobbies include walking her dogs, Liberty and Patriot, spending time with friends and family, and staying active.
