Makayla has been working in broadcast news while attending college and since graduation. She recently graduated with a degree in journalism in Arizona, but she was born and raised in Anchorage and is happy to be back in her hometown telling the community's stories. Makayla has always loved writing, but didn't expect to have a career in broadcast journalism. Through various opportunities to learn the craft, Makayla fell in love with it and wouldn't have it any other way.
Makayla has enjoyed covering crime and courts stories, but also has a love for geology. Some of her favorite stories have been about the Grand Canyon, as well as a tsunami threat. She loves the adventure of visiting a new place to tell a story, but also enjoys a day in producing newscasts.
