Designer + Brand Strategist

Love for design and passion for people have always been the two driving forces throughout Kayla’s career. She obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with an emphasis on psychological research from Coastal Carolina University. Although her love for research was strong, she missed living a creative lifestyle. Kayla chose to continue her education and went on to graduate with a master’s degree from one of the top Advertising programs in the country, the University of Texas at Austin. During that time she notably completed the prestigious Texas Creative Sequence program, with a focus on Art Direction. Getting back to her roots, she kicked off her career by working for a local Austin non-profit whose focus was to get kids living active, healthy lifestyles. After a couple years, she switched to a volunteer capacity and transitioned to a corporate design position at Spiceworks. There she worked with an in-house design team to concept and design digital campaigns and advertisements for major technology brands. These included companies such as Lenovo, Dell, HP, and Microsoft, to name a few. Kayla has been praised by her peers for her design skills, strong work ethic, and positive energy.
