Shayla graduated as a veterinary technician in 2006 in Saskatoon, where she worked in private clinics and at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. In 2009, she moved with her husband, Ben to Grande Prairie where she continued her career in private practice. In May 2011, she welcomed her first child and that October moved to Spruce Grove. In July 2012 she returned to work at a local clinic. She is happy to call Spruce Grove her home and to be raising her family here.
