The summer before college graduation, Kayla accepted a paid internship with Gretchen Carlson at the Fox News Channel headquarters in New York City.  At the end of her internship she accepted a full time job offer as a PA for Fox Business’s Kennedy then went on to work as the personal assistant for Fox News Channel’s Greg Gutfeld.

When she’s not at work, Kayla enjoys going for runs along the water, perfecting her photography skills, or curling up with a really good book. This Florida girl loves snow and at least once every winter makes a trip to the ski slopes. She also loves spending time with her family and cheering on the Florida Gators!
