After completing a Bachelor of Health Science at The University of Queensland, Kayla made the move to Melbourne to study a Master of Dietetics at Monash University. Since then Kayla has continued her study at Monash University by undertaking a Doctor of Philosophy in Gastroenterology and Extreme’s Physiology.
During her studies, Kayla has built upon her interests in all thing’s gut health and preventative practice. This has led to Kayla researching the impact that varying nutrition interventions have on preventing gastrointestinal related disease, particularly in ultra-endurance athletes and military personnel.
Kayla’s gut health research has gained international traction and will be presented at several global conferences and events this year.
In her spare time Kayla enjoys going for a surf and a snorkel, trail running, training at her favourite powerlifting gym, oil painting, and experimenting in the kitchen!
Kayla provides dietitian consultations on Wednesdays at In Stride Health Clinic.
