Hi all! My name is Kayla, and I am originally from Littleton, Colorado. I am a senior at the university, studying History and Native American Indigenous Studies. Growing up, I was always encouraged to participate in physical activities and sports teams.

It is my personal fitness goal to run a marathon this year and to eventually compete in an Ironman. I am super excited to help people reach their fitness goals this coming semester. I hope to see you all in the pool soon!
