Kyla joined Storm Team 8 in January 2015, returning to her home state of Connecticut. She began her meteorology career at The Weather Channel where she was part of the team that covered Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath, as well as several major tornado outbreaks.
Prior to becoming a meteorologist, Kyla reported and anchored for KLAS and KVVU in Las Vegas. She holds a journalism degree from Boston University and a meteorology degree from Mississippi State.
Kyla also has a theatre and acting background. She is known by comedy aficionados as Peabody Award Winning “Andrea Bennett” from The Onion, and she toured the world with several productions of Broadway Shows.
Her travels have taken her to over 50 countries and allowed her to see weather phenomena as far away as Antarctica and Papua New Guinea. She is excited to once again be a part of the Nutmeg State.
