A New Jersey native, Kayla considers herself a true triple threat: actor, singer, and that's not right...performer, creator, and teacher. There we go. She grew up with a love to sing and perform since the moment she began to speak and hasn't stopped since.

Regionally she has performed with Fulton Theatre, Gretna Theatre, Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre, Allenberry Playhouse, Prima Theatre.

She created a series on Instagram called In Conversation With…where she partnered with a different professional in the theatre industry each week to go LIVE and have conversation about their experiences in the industry, offer advice, answer questions, and learn. She connected with Laura Benanti through the hashtag #SunshineSongs, which Laura created to highlight students whose shows were cancelled due to COVID-19, and Kayla performed in her virtual Sunshine Songs Concert. She has maintained a full private studio from her home and was also an adjunct instructor in music at Lebanon Valley College where she received her B.A. in Music with a concentration in voice.

A proud NATS member, Kayla has been teaching for eight years and offers private voice lessons and coachings with an emphasis on vocal health and freedom. She studied classical technique under Dr. Rebecca Lister and continues to study both classical and contemporary technique with today’s leading vocal pedagogues including Michael Hadary, Jared Trudeau, Mary Saunders Barton, and Amanda Flynn with a focus in Musical Theatre Vocal Pedagogy. She has continued her education by completing Amanda Flynn's Winter 2021 Vocal Pedagogy Course, the Penn State Bel Canto Can Belto Workshop in 2020, taking classes with The Growing Studio in NYC, and Rock the Audition with Sheri Sanders.
