Kayla was born in Boise, Idaho, and grew up traveling all over the state, developing a great love for the outdoors. In addition to exploring Idaho, Kayla also likes to take adventures to the Oregon Coast, from hiking in the beautiful wilderness to combing the beaches for seashells and other treasures. When she’s not out exploring nature, you can find Kayla in the kitchen baking up some goodies. She hopes to one day own a bakery in a small town off the Oregon Coast.
It was during her sophomore year in high school when she discovered her passion for cooking/baking. She had taken a basic culinary course and it soon became her favorite class. After high school she jumped straight into a kitchen job, starting as a dishwasher and working her way up the ladder to prep cook. Kayla has been gaining experience in the culinary industry for five years, including earning her Kitchen Management Certificate. She is eager to learn and try new recipes, alongside creating delicious meals for Alzar School students and staff.
