Cayla Keiser



Health, Wellness, Storytelling


Rochester Institute of Technology


I used to think I had to have everything figured out in life. But I’ve recently realized that it’s okay to not know where I’m heading next, as long as where I end up makes me happy. Our paths are not permanent, nor do we ever stop building them. I'm looking forward to dedicating my life to marriage and family therapy and health journalism.
