Kayla Ongais

Admissions Counselor

Where are you from? 

I was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawai'i. My hobbies include: swimming in the ocean, eating local foods, and spending time with family. Just moved to California from Nashville, Tennessee, and I love San Diego already!

What did you study in college? 

I earned a Bachelor's degree in Sport Management at Colorado Mesa University and a Master's degree in Sport Administration at Belmont University. My passion is to bring people together through a shared experience, which includes sports and entertainment! 

What was your favorite involvement in college and why? 

Internships! I was able to learn hands-on about different jobs and find my passion. Some notable events I have worked as an intern - 2017 Stanley Cup Final, CMA Awards, and multiple concerts at Bridgestone Arena.
