“My name is Kayla Bishop, and I am 26 years old. I was born in Havre, Montana but moved to Lander when I was 4 years old and grew up here. I am the youngest of 5 brothers and 2 sisters and love being part of a big family. I graduated high school in 2013 and then went to Casper Community College to study photography. Shortly after that, I moved to Laramie and started working in childcare, and fell in love with it. I stayed there for a few years, then moved around to a couple of different places before returning to Lander. I love to camp, hike, read, travel, and play with my dog. I also love to learn and hope to go back to school soon to continue early childhood education.”
