Kyla was born in suburban Philadelphia but tried not to let that stifle her deep desire to see the world. Her travels have included: three months on the European rails, three years studying and working in Japan, and nine months traveling back from Japan to the US when she was done. Kyla took all of her Japanese knowledge and language ability and threw it right out the window when she met her Chinese-American husband in 2000. In addition to her work as Senior Editor of World Moms Bog, Kyla is a freelance writer, copy editor, newbie triathlete and blogger. She and her husband reside outside of Boston, Massachusetts, where they are raising two spunky kids (6 and 3), two frisky cats, a snail and a fish. You can read more about Kyla’s outlook on the world and motherhood on her personal blog, Growing Muses.
