With over nine years’ experience in communications, digital marketing and social media, Kyla knows the secrets to social media success!

A diploma in Marketing Management from BCIT and a Bachelor of Arts in Professional Communication from Royal Roads University has given Kyla the foundation and knowledge to build her career and work experience.

Social Sticks started out as a fun hobby, and from word-of-mouth turned into a profitable project, helping people move forward with their social media strategies.

In 2013, Kyla earned the "Excellence in Social Media by a Student" award at the Victoria Social Media Awards. After attending Social Media Camp, the largest social media conference in Canada, a few times, Kyla returned as a speaker in 2016, giving a talk on “How to Get your first 1,000 Followers on Twitter”.

Kyla believes in a work/life balance, and even though she works hard for her clients, she believes “play time” is also important. You can often find her exploring trails and hiking around Vancouver Island with her fiancé, walking her dog, Aero, and touring BC’s best wineries with friends.
