Traveling is one of Kayla’s many interests, and she was lucky enough to spend eight weeks backpacking through western Europe after her freshman year in college.  She also enjoys participating in intramural sports and discovering new music.

Kayla is looking forward to transitioning into the professional world of engineering.  She wants to achieve her PE license and continue to learn and evolve as an engineer and leader.
