Kaya graduated from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN in May 2023 with a Bachelor’s Degree in French, mathematics, and economics. She played on the St. Olaf volleyball team as a DS all four years and joined track and field as a thrower for her last year. Prior to St. Olaf, Kaya played for Minnetonka High School in Minnetonka, MN, and for Vital from age 14-18. Kaya is currently working as an actuary in Plymouth, MN. Outside of working, studying for actuary exams, and coaching, you can find Kaya playing viola and partaking in the handbell choir for church, attending trivia events, hanging with friends, and continuing to play volleyball here and there! Kaya is excited to be back at Vital, this time on the coaching end.
