Kayla serves as Director of Operations, HR, & Culture, overseeing a wide range of tasks to ensure the team is supported and The Land Trust operates as efficiently as possible.

Kayla grew up in the outskirts of Nashville feeling drawn to the outdoors, exploring with friends and attending summer camp every Summer.

Kayla spends her spare time sharing a meal and playing games with her family and friends. She enjoys music, gardening, and seeking out historical and scenic landmarks with her husband, RC, and their dog, Beverly.

I love having a direct hand in the conservation of the land I have grown to cherish so much. I fully believe that what we are doing here is directly impacting the lives of the present and future generations for the better, and that makes what we do extremely important.
