Kayla was born and raised in Spokane, and anyone that has ever known her will tell you that she is an animal lover. From the time that she could talk, a career in veterinary medicine was in her future. Kayla entered the veterinary field in 2014, obtained her degree in Veterinary Nursing and became a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2019, and hasn’t looked back since. She shares her life with her husband Steven, and shares her free time with four dogs lovingly called her “pack”. This group of dogs introduced her to the world of competitive dog sports, and created Kayla’s passion for canine fitness and conditioning. This passion keeps growing allowing Kayla to obtain her Certified Canine Strength and Conditioning Coach (CCSC) advanced certification in 2023. Kayla has been a member of the Pawlouse team since late 2022, and she can’t wait to help you meet your pet’s fitness goals.
