Kyla has recently become licensed as a Financial Advisor and Insurance Agent. She joined the firm in August 2020. Kyla currently holds a Series 7 (General Securities Representative) license, a Series 63 (Uniform Securities Agent State Law) license, a Series 65 (Uniform Investment Advisor Law), and a Health and Life Insurance license.
Kyla has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from the University of Oklahoma Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication. In June 2020, she earned the designation of DTM* (Distinguished Toastmaster), the highest designation awarded by Toastmasters International.
Kyla began her career as the VP of Communications for the Norman Chamber of Commerce where she worked for 10 years. Her time at the Norman CofC instilled a love for her community.
Kyla left the Chamber to become the Director of Development for the Women’s Resource Center, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking. Her time at WRC really opened her eyes and heart to people who are affected by violence and socioeconomic factors that keep them in unsafe situations.
This love of community, desire to help those in need of financial literacy training, a slight push from dad, (and a little global pandemic) helped convince Kyla that the time had come to refocus her career in order to help people plan and prepare for a balanced and confident financial future.
Kyla is married to her best friend, Jason. Jason owns a property management company and a landscape supply delivery company. Together they have two children, Owen and Luke.
