Feeling Nosy?

(That's okay - I'm nosy too)

Hi there! My name is Kayla and I'm a web designer and developer.

Since graduating from the University of Florida in 2011, I've worked a few local jobs before settling down professionally with UF Information Technology as a Web Developer.

Recently I also settled down personally by getting married. My Husband, Brian, and I bought our first home in Gainesville, Florida - where we live with our small zoo of three dogs and two cats.

In my spare time I obsess over my animals, drink excessive amounts of coffee, and binge-watch Netflix while attempting (and failing) to crochet better than your grandma. I'm also learning how to cross-stitch!

If you'd like to chat about a design job or get sushi sometime feel free to drop me a line below. I look forward to hearing from you!

In case you were wondering about our zoo...
