Kyla has been my professional mentor and friend for 38 years. She taught me everything worth knowing about the public relations profession. She is one the funniest, smartest and most caring people you will ever meet. Her sense of style is always on point. Best jewelry ever! Keep on shining and inspiring us Kyla.
