Dr. Gayla Kalp Jackson was born in Oxnard, California and attended the University of Southern California and Phillips Graduate Institute, most of her college career, earning four degrees: a Bachelors in Humanities, two Masters in Education & Psychology and a Ph.D. in Business Administration. She was married for seven years and divorced shortly after her only child, Kristen, was born. She chose to be a single, working mother for thirty three years until four years ago when she met her husband Joe, a semi-retired banker and they now reside in Moorpark, California.

During Graduate School, Gayla worked as the Assistant Director of the Senior Citizens Center for the City of Culver City where she learned valuable lessons on getting the most out of your Senior years. During college breaks, she toured with the American Theatre Company in the United States and Europe as a professional actress, earning "boffo" reviews. After college, she worked in marketing and sales with HBO and Metro Sports where she directed the media for the Lakers, Chargers & the Kings sports teams. For her second career, Gayla created and ran an international cable training and employee development company for 23 years and was a featured writer for three industry magazines. Gayla was awarded "Queen of Cable Television" by the National Cable Television Association. For Gayla's third career, she became a licensed Psychotherapist, working for the Glendale Police Department working with gang teens, parents, & families. Gayla is now semi-retired and is working pro bono with the Ventura County Youth Authority, four Charity Organizations, and providing therapy for troubled teens and parents. In her free time, she travels with her husband and plays with her grandchildren -- her biggest joy!
