  • Kayla's familiarity with the entertainment world started with an internship at Q99.7 Atlanta, one of Georgia's biggest radio stations, where her published articles centered around celebrity news, concerts, and TV.
  • She was also a radio presenter at Seacrest Studios, a broadcast media center in pediatric hospitals developed by Ryan Seacrest, which allowed Kayla the chance to either interview or develop social media coverage during celebrity visits with Shawn Mendes, Travis Scott, Ella Mai, French Montana, and Jake Miller.
  • One thing not to be forgotten is Kayla's attention to detail and creativity, solidified by her current position as a Communications and Marketing Specialist at Boston University.


Kayla's writing experience began as early as high school, where she was editor of her high school paper. During her college career, she wrote for her campus newspaper, TUC Magazine, and Her Campus Media. Upon graduation, she was an inaugural writer and editor for Narcity Media's launch in the U.S. As a post-graduate, Kayla wrote for BU Today, Boston University's award-winning daily website. Additionally, she has freelanced short-term for several publications, such as ONE47pm, Shondaland, Carefree Mag, The Unsealed, Screen Rant, and more.


Kayla earned her MS in Journalism from Boston University in 2022 on an Excellence in Communication Scholarship, the highest honor a communications student can receive. Previously, she attended Georgia State University and graduated magna cum laude with a BA in Journalism in 2019.
