Kayla has been a Senior Commerce Editor for Dotdash Meredith's Travel News and Deals team since 2022. She was previously an editor at Fodor's Travel, where she traveled the globe to find the best hotels, restaurants, and attractions to feature in the company's guidebooks. Prior to that, she was an editor for ShermansTravel, where she worked on destination guides, reviewed cruise ships and hotels, and rounded up all kinds of travel news and deals.

When she's not traveling, Kayla is based in Boston, where she's always on the hunt for the world's coziest leggings and warm sweaters, in addition to the perfect travel uniform that's as low maintenance as possible. A Florida native, Kayla also can't resist shopping for resort-friendly gear for trips back home, and she's always inspired by fashion gear from France and New York, both places she used to call home.

Favorite Purchase

I recently wrote a review about the Coolife luggage set that's super durable and lightweight — perfect for travelers who value great quality and a reasonable price tag.
