Hi, I’m NaKayla, but those close to me call me Kay. I was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI and I’ve enjoyed writing since I could pick up a pen. My mom kept these ridiculous poems I wrote at nine years old. Poetry is what I called them. Still today, I believe that writing, communicating, and listening are my strengths. It’s what I’m good at. And yes, your girl is a mother of four: my two boys and boy/girl twins! I’m juggling motherhood, a relationship, a full-time job, and this thing we call WRITING!

OhLadies was born off of a tradition in my family. The ladies gather for what we call, “Sessions,” and we discuss whatever issues are the problem at hand. Be it a partnership with your mate, your parent, your sibling, or even a co-worker. We address it, get feedback, and ultimately make our own decisions. I’ve always enjoyed the opportunity to sit with wise women who have a ton of advice to offer. You get so many opinions and experiences. These women are open, honest, and full of knowledge.

Now, I want to invite you into our sessions. I want to help you through whatever you’re going through. Good and bad. Chime in when you’re up and down. You could be someone else’s help on that day. OhLadies is your new community of friends. Here, we will speak from experience. We will give advice. No, we’re not experts. We’re simply friends exchanging feedback on something we’ve been through. So if you can agree to be open, be honest, and be helpful, then I welcome you to your new home.
