Born and raised in Calgary, AB, Canada, to a family of engineers, Kaela's childhood was a combination of hard work and time management. Her family valued togetherness, and often created memories by traveling and doing exciting activities. Even her extended family shares the same passion for family fellowship, and large dinners were often a nightly event. Her wholesome family upbringing imbued her with an enthusiasm to provide a shared happiness to families of all shapes and sizes throughout family law.
After graduating from high school in Canada, she moved internationally to Oregon and finished her undergrad at Willamette, a small liberal arts college in Salem. She graduated from Penn State Law in May of 2021 and moved to Arizona to be closer to family, and to be able to hike in her free time.
