Hi! My name is Kayla, and I’m originally from the California Bay Area, but currently live in Colorado Springs, CO with my wonderful wife and son, as well as our brood of pets (2 cats and 1 dog).
I learned about Girls with Guts via Facebook, just after the 2015 retreat, and joined the forum at that point. I went to my first retreat in 2016, and couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to connect with.
I knew that diverse voices were needed within the GWG community, and I wanted to make sure that the needs and challenges of the LGBTQ+ community had a voice and an advocate within our sisterhood. It was important to me to see that happen, and I am proud to stand up for those women like me within our group.
When I am not volunteering with GWG, I spend time reading, hanging out with my family, traveling when I can, and volunteering with the DEI group at my office.
