Kayla has been a Program Coordinator with IARC since 2015. It shows every day just how much she loves her job, especially in the way she creates genuine, lasting relationships with the surrogates and families she helps. Kayla is a huge animal lover and loves the outdoors! She is passionate, caring, a quick wit, and she loves adventures. She is our Kayla and we can’t imagine our team without her!

Have a coworker describe you.

Program Coordinator Shae had this to say about Kayla:

Kayla is a wealth of knowledge and our go-to girl! She is so invested and dedicated to her work and clients that some days you hardly hear a peep out of her; but when you do, get ready for some serious laughs!  She keeps us going with her witty humor and is a meme master.  Kayla really puts her heart and soul into everything she does, which shows through not only in her work but also personal life- If you’re fortunate enough to have Kayla as your coordinator, you’re in good hands!

What is the best part about your job or why you love working for IARC?

I love knowing I’m part of one of the biggest most life altering experiences in someone’s life.  I also love the fact that I get to meet so many wonderful people from so many wonderful places.


If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?

EVERYWHERE, there are so many places I want to visit.  I guess if I had to pick 1 it would be Italy or New Zealand but that could change tomorrow.


What is an IP or SU story that motivates you in your work?

 It would be impossible for me to limit it to just one story.  Generally speaking, my biggest motivators are sibling journeys (or returning surrogates or parents) and matches that have endured a significant amount of difficulties.  The greater the storm the brighter the rainbow.


If you could do someone else’s job in IARC for a day, who would it be and why?

Steve’s – solely for the travel.


Three things I would struggle to live without are……………………..

coffee, my family, humor/comedy.


Who or what inspires you?

Happiness, I prefer to do only the things that make me happy.  Also, Gary Vaynerchuk.


When not in the office, you can find me…………….

at the lake, dog park, thrift shop or at home.
