Kyla graduated from UVM in 2008 with a B.S in Environmental Science. After graduating she apprenticed on an organic vegetable farm which sparked her passion for sustainable agriculture. Afterward, she worked for an organic dairy in Addison County and fell in love with cows and dairying. Having spent her whole life in Vermont, Kyla decided to change scenery (& climates), living in California for 5 years working for a large organic dairy and family-owned farms as a farmer, administrative assistant, and organizer. Kyla returned to Vermont in 2017 for a position at NOFA-VT. She currently serves on the boards of the Vermont Farm Show and VDIA (Vermont Dairy Industry Association). In her free time, Kyla enjoys spending time outdoors adventuring with her dog and growing & raising food in Randolph Center with her partner.
