McKayla Wahlquist


Speech Language Pathology Assistant

Basic Information: I am an Idaho girl, but I am always cold so I love living here in Arizona. I studied communication disorders at BYU. I have lots of nieces and nephews, and I love working and playing with kids.

Interests and Hobbies: I enjoy creating things, whether it’s baking, painting, writing, or decorations for my home. I love to swim and spend time outside. I love sharing time and treats with my family and friends. Everyone knows I always have lots of snacks! (In the picture, I’m the one on the right.)

Favorite Place to Travel: The ocean is my favorite place to be, whether it’s the freezing Oregon coast or a sunny island. My lifelong dream is to swim with sea turtles.

Favorite Quote: “You can do anything one day at a time.”

What I Love Most About Working with Children:I love how bright and enthusiastic children are. Watching them learn and grow is so fun!
