As Director of Development and Marketing for Healing Waters International, Kayla realized that a woman cannot fully be empowered without access to clean water- it’s that simple. By creating The Her Initiative, Healing Water’s campaign for women and children, she is uniting her passion for women and girls with the most basic human need: clean water. Kayla has had a passion for empowering women for as long as she can remember! As a young teen she mentored younger girls at summer camp and knew then that empowering women and girls would always be a part of her life. While studying at Oxford University she wrote a thesis on a 19th century missionary who used education as a means to empower the former slave women of Jamaica. That research led her to a career in the non-profit world, focusing on education and empowerment.
When she isn’t traveling to our project sites around the world and sharing the mission of HER, she is most happy playing in the Colorado Rocky Mountains with her side-kick dog, Alfie!
