Kayla VanDuser - Outreach Coordinator

Kayla is married to her wonderful husband, Kyle, who she met while attending Ave Maria University. She was a tri-sport collegiate athlete, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology, and a Minor in Psychology. For the last six years, she has worked for a global medical device engineering company.

 

She has joined the My Mentor Team as the Outreach Coordinator, to be able to make more of a direct impact on the future lives of the youth we are able to serve, while also being able to fulfill her calling to motherhood in a deeper, more meaningful way with her two tiny humans. She is thrilled to be joining a company whose vision more closely aligns with her life’s mission; to better serve God, her family, and community every day.
