Kayla Pugh

Kayla is a book, movie, and music lover who prefers her coffee decaffeinated with a shot of kahlua. She attended Mississippi State University but transferred after two years to finish her degree in English Literature at East Carolina University, where she would be closer to her husband stationed at Camp Lejeune. She and her husband of 13 years, Joshua, are Vicksburg natives who came south via Baton Rouge four years ago for the beach and the cool coastal vibe. An Insurance professional turned stay-at-home mom to her son Torstein and her two pibble fur babies, Kayla is considering more children but fears her dogs will revolt. They love to run-ish as a family and hit local trails and parks. Kayla loves cosplay, Dr. Seuss raps, and fad diets.
