Operations & Outreach Manager
Born and raised in Taconite, enhancing and shining a light on the many assets of Itasca County has always been a passion of Kayla's. In 2013, Kayla graduated from Greenway High School and decided that she wanted to stay in Itasca County for just a while longer. She attended Itasca Community College, where she obtained her Associates of Arts degree in 2015. From ICC, she went on to claim a BBA from Viterbo University in La Crosse, WI and competed in collegiate softball. In 2018, she moved back home to be with her husband. They planted their roots in Coleraine and have been incredibly happy with this decision ever since.
In 2019, Kayla accepted the position as IEDC's Marketing Specialist. After two years of employment, Kayla earned a promotion to Operations & Outreach Manager in 2022. Kayla's strengths lie in organizational management, social media/marketing strategy, operational outreach and interpersonal communication. Kayla's favorite part of working at IEDC is the fun and professional "team" environment. She says that our organizational values coincide well with her own. She appreciates the opportunity to grow not only as a professional, but as a person through her time thus far at IEDC.
On her freetime, Kayla loves to fish, hunt, and visit Minnesota Breweries. She is an Assistant Softball Coach at Itasca Community College. She loves diving into a great book, binging a new show, or getting "Mama" snuggles. Kayla feels incredibly blessed to be supported by her husband, Jace; her son, Blake; her entire family, and all her friends!
