Born in Nebraska and raised in Los Angeles, Ayla graduated from Princeton University with a BA in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and minors in Dance and Environmental Studies. While at Princeton, Ayla spent much of her time in a dance studio or in the nearby woods. She studied in Panama for a semester and returned to the tropics for thesis research on primate populations in Peru.
Ayla recently traded the forest for the stage to pursue dance professionally in New York City. She is passionate about education and particularly enjoys when science becomes fun and exciting for students.
