Hi! Its so sweet of you to want to know more about me – I hope I can get to know you too! As you may have guessed, my name is Kayla. I’m a 20-something living in Boston. I grew up about an hour southwest of Boston and went to college at the University of New Hampshire (go Wildcats!). By day I work across New England as an environmental engineer for a consulting company. I specialize as a remediation engineer working to clean-up contaminated land, air and sea. I LOVE what I do and giving back to the earth and community is something that is really important to me. In my spare time, my hobbies include basically everything you’ll find here – going out in Boston, hosting events, adventuring, and photography. Similarly, I love to share these past-times with friends, family, and everyone in between.
How did I learn so much about Boston and going out in the city?
When I moved to Boston after college, I didn’t really know what to do for fun in the city or where to go out. I read tons of local websites, yelp reviews and countless Pinterest lists to figure it out. Unable to find answers from reviews alone, I took to the streets myself! Since then, I have been to over a hundred bars, restaurants, concert venues and historic sites in Boston. Whether you’ve lived (or worked) here for years or you’re visiting for one night, I’m confident my services will help ensure you have a great time in the city!
Being a local
I grew up a train-ride away from Boston. My childhood is sprinkled with memories of coming into the city for class field trips to the science museum or to devour desserts at the Cheesecake Factory with friends. In high school, I was elected to the State Student Advisory Council for the Board of Education, requiring me to come into the city once a month to participate in our state’s legislative processes. After I could drive, I also made many trips to the city for concerts, block parties, and festivals. So you could say I put in my time as a Boston tourist but having lived in the city for years now, not needing a GPS to get around or an app to find the free parking, I think I’ve earned the proud title of Boston local.
