Kyla began her career in 2004 as a Geologist with Chesapeake Energy in Oklahoma City, where she worked Gulf Coast, South Texas, and West Texas fields. She moved to Dallas and was employed by Denbury Resources in 2010 where she worked as a Geologist in the company’s Louisiana and Mississippi fields specializing in Enhanced Oil Recovery with CO2.
