MaKayla returned to the Smith Leonard tax team in August 2023 after previously serving as an intern in spring 2022. After her internship, she returned to Appalachian State University to finish her undergraduate and graduate degrees. She is in the process of preparation and testing to earn her CPA license.

MaKayla grew up in Statesville, NC, but is looking for a little change of scenery so she hopes to come to the Triad to build her career. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, watching anything Marvel-related, and enjoying a football game, whether it be at Kidd Brewer or at home with friends.
