Kayla, who also goes by her callsign, ‘Keebs’, is one of the most unique muses there is. She is an incredible role model in female empowerment. But her success did not come without great sacrifice…
Kayla is a graduate of Northwestern University and the United States Naval Postgraduate School with her undergraduate degree in Industrial Engineering and her Masters in Systems Engineering. But she is not just a graduate of these prestigious universities, she is one of the pioneers who has broken the mold and paved the way for women in the male-dominated fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
At the age of 22 she commissioned as an officer in the United States Navy where she served 10 years in one of the most challenging pipelines as naval aviator.
She was accepted into the ranks of the Navy’s strategic airborne task force and highly classified nuclear command and control squadron, where she qualified as Mission Commander aboard the E-6B jet, “Mercury.” In 2017 she completed her last three-year tour on a 3-Star United States Marine Corps' General's Staff as a Liaison Officer, and is now transitioning to a new career where she will be instrumental in saving lives in the medical technology manufacturing industry as well as helping people lead more fulfilling and longer lives through the Performance Warrior Network.
She has traveled around the world and has lived all over the country, but she never stops yearning for more. Keebs began natural bodybuilding and competing in physique competitions as a way to stay in shape and keep her mind focused during long missions away from home. In 2016 she earned her Pro card in three fitness categories with the International Natural Bodybuilding Association and earned a spot on Team USA to compete around the world.
For ‘Keebs’, “keeping up with the guys” is an understatement… it is a true test of will, self-discipline, and fight… For ‘Keebs’ “operating outside your comfort zone” is not just a saying, it is who she is… she comes from humble roots but with vigor to excel…
Her mental and physical prowess are a result of her drive to keep finding the answers… that when aggregated become the knowledge… and when internalized become the wisdom - the wisdom essential to build and take care of your mind and body, so that it can best serve you. A true sign of health is Resiliency - a characteristic very well known to Keebs…
Keebs has realized her calling and continues to work to be an exceptional role model and find ways to connect people and share “the secrets” with those who truly yearn to be Performance Warriors.
Her husband - has been her light in darkness. Her family - has been her cornerstone in times of uncertainty. Her band-of-brothers have lifted her when she has fallen… But without adversity, she would not be who she is today… She is grateful for every challenge.
Keebs continues to push herself beyond all limitations, as well as others, to be committed to dreaming bigger… and making those dreams become a reality without hesitation… What led her to become a Health Made Simple PRO, Operation Supplement Safety Ambassador, and the founder of the Performance Warrior Community was her desire to help others take control of their health, performance, and happiness through education , connection, and simple solutions.
Her philanthropic work and active participation in the community will motivate you, and her drive to spread self- and situational-awareness will inspire you. She seeks engagements and partnerships that are mutually beneficial and align with her Why.
Whether it is on a stage, behind a podium, or simply face-to-face, her story and her contagious charisma for life are what inspire others, and truly make her a
