Kayla wants to give advice to anyone wondering if they should attend IMTA: "If you want to go into a bigger market to broaden your horizons you should go! The amazing preparation form the wonderful staff at PMTM has gotten me to where I am today. From the very beginning when I walked in the doors." She received nothing but positive support and encouragement from our team at Pro-Model and Talent Management. Kayla said she would have never had the confidence to go without Pro-Model and Talent's help and we are so glad she built up the confidence to go.
While she attended IMTA, she signed with Model Management Group (MMG) in New York City. Kayla is ready to take the fashion industry by storm working with MMG. She was so excited when MMG decided to add her to their team and stated how she couldn't have made it to where she is now without her "family" back at Pro-Model and Talent Management.
Model Management Group was a great fit for Kayla since she felt an undeniable connection with them from the start. She felt comfortable signing with MMG because there are tons of bookings found on both coasts so wherever she is at, she will have options for auditions. Signing with MMG has motivated Kayla more than ever to work on her craft and refine her modeling techniques. Kayla hopes to gain more exposure working in a bigger market with MMG and have her name known worldwide.
Extending her knowledge in the fashion industry, Kayla is currently taking Advanced Acting classes with our very own Aubrey Caldwell, and trying to take as many voice classes as possible. She also wants to broaden her skills outside of the fashion world as she is working on learning Chinese.
Outside of the modeling and acting world, Kayla is an outgoing and dedicated student. She is a junior at Elyria Catholic High School and enjoys English courses. Her creativity can shine when she is able to freely express herself in writing. Kayla lives a very active life. She plays volleyball for Spirit Volleyball Club in Akron. Not only does she play volleyball, but she is also a member of T3 Barbell Club where she competes in Olympic weightlifting. When Kayla is not busy with modeling, sports, or school; she is involved with the Key Club doing local volunteer work that helps out her community. Her goals for after high school includes attending college and majoring in early childhood education or pre-med.
Finding free time in her busy schedule is difficult but when she can, Kayla enjoys spending time with family and friends and soaking up the sun at the beach. She is also very creative and enjoys making crafts. At night, she enjoys curling up with a bowl of popcorn and watching a comedy on Netflix.
Pro-Model and Talent Management is so proud of everything Kayla has accomplished so far, and we are going to keep cheering her on as she pursues her dreams. We can't wait to see what else is next from Kayla!
