Meet Kayla Gaskins, our rock-climbing, Quesarito-loving full-stack web wizard who has a knack for building custom WordPress themes and plugins to create attractive and interactive web applications that enhance the user experience.
As a child, Kayla nerded out about computers, PowerPoint animations, and RollerCoaster Tycoon. When she’s not busy coding or dodging wrenches (see below), Kayla defies gravity while rock climbing—despite a serious fear of heights. She credits her mom, an engineer, for instilling invaluable lessons about being a woman in tech, and for teaching her the difference between fixes and solutions.
“A fix is something that can immediately be applied, but it is temporary,” Kayla says. “A solution implies something more robust and long-term.”
