Kyla began her career in event planning and bar management after growing up on the North Fork of Long Island (aka New York Wine Country). After nearly a decade in the service industry, she enrolled at Stony Brook University. Energized by the recent rush of men and women from diverse backgrounds entering the world of politics, she began her studies in Political Science and will graduate this Spring with a focus in Political Behavior & Psychology. Kyla is thrilled to be joining the HeadCount team as a Music and Politics Intern and to have the opportunity to help bolster democracy! An R&B enthusiast, Kyla realized her concert dreams when she (finally!) saw Lauryn Hill perform live at Jones Beach in 2018. Above all, she is an insatiable traveler and has completed 5 long-term backpacking trips through 20+ countries.
