KAYLA WATKINS

I began working at BBBS at age 18 as I was inspired to give back to the agency because so much was given to me through the program. My Big showed me the true meaning of love through her constant support and encouragement. For that, I owe the agency as much as I can give.

They tell me I have one of the biggest smiles in the building, and I’m often who you see when you first come in the door. I have been with BBBS for 4 years and love the people I work with. I’m also the person who reaches out to you to help you get the process started in becoming a Big.
