Mrs. Maryland America 2019



Up Close and Personal

Kayla is originally a Midwesterner, born and raised in Kansas. She moved to Maryland and married the love of her life, Kelly, in 2014. They welcomed their daughter, Kerrigan, in 2016. They now live in Howard County with their two dogs and enjoy running, kayaking, and baking together. As the proud mother to a gorgeous little girl with Down syndrome, Kayla knows firsthand the impact of a diagnosis experience on a young family, whether pre-or post-natal. Through Strong Over Wrong, her mission is to create a more informative and compassionate diagnosis experience for families everywhere. If she’s not with her family or advocating, you can likely find her at My Gym Children’s Fitness Center, where she has worked full time as a Director for over 6.5 years teaching children early fitness and physical skills.

Why did you get involved in pageantry?

I wanted so badly to find a way to advocate for the Down syndrome community that felt accessible to me. As a former theatre student, the aspect of being on stage and performing really drew me in. As I learned more, I fell in love with the fact that pageantry combined so many of my passions and simultaneously allowed me to serve my community in such an impactful way.
