Kayla is a Financial Planning Associate at Pathfinder Wealth Consulting. Her role is to serve clients and their families and to support Pathfinder's team of  CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professionals by working on investments, reports, and client services.

A Wilmington native, Kayla grew up in a full house with her parents, two siblings, grandparents, an aunt, and three cousins. She graduated summa cum laude from North Carolina State University with a BS in education with a concentration in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  Kayla was also a recipient of the North Carolina Teaching Fellow scholarship. Kayla returned to the Wilmington area to serve as a teacher in Title 1 schools in New Hanover County for four years, while also serving as a mentor to beginning teachers. During those years of working with a Title 1 population and serving college students and young couples in her church, Kayla developed a passion for financial literacy and decided to pursue a career as a financial advisor. She began pursuing her MBA at UNCW in August 2017 where she was elected president and CEO of the Class of 2019, and she joined Pathfinder in June 2018.

Kayla lives in Wilmington with her husband, Brad, and they enjoy exploring new cities, hiking, the beach, and spending time with their families and friends. Her passions include education, reading, and serving her church and community.
