Hello! My name is Kayla, I started at GLK in August of 2018 after interning at the office and have loved every minute of it! While I was in school, it became clear that my main desire was to eventually work in orthodontics. So you can imagine, when I found out that I received orthodontics as my specialty office for my internship I was very excited! I spent three weeks interning here and immediately saw how well the doctors and assistants got to know the patients and their families and absolutely loved that aspect of working in ortho. Now, I feel so blessed to be part of a great group of people who have the same love that I do—changing smiles! While I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jordan, our fur baby and our families.
