Layla, an experienced community organizer and public health advocate, brings a wealth of knowledge and passion to her work. Growing up in suburban Detroit with a single mother, Layla developed a strong work ethic and an appreciation for the importance of family. These values propelled her to pursue a Master of Public Health from Columbia University and embark on a career in public health advocacy and health policy reform.

During her career, Layla served as a health policy analyst, focusing on evaluating Medicare reimbursement and nursing home quality. Alongside her work in the health sector, Layla also dedicated her efforts to organizing for voting rights and reproductive freedom. She played a vital role in the Michigan Reproductive Freedom for All campaign, working with Catholic voices to advocate for abortion rights. This successful endeavor resulted in the inclusion of abortion as a constitutional right in Michigan.

Layla's commitment to community and organizing continued to flourish when she served as the Program Director for Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib's Youth Civic Engagement Fellowship. In this role, she skillfully coordinated organizing training and provided instruction on social justice issues to empower the youth in her community.

Currently, Layla is running to represent Michigan's 25th House District, where she aims to protect public health and champion the well-being of her constituents. With her extensive experience and dedication, Layla is poised to make a positive impact on the community she serves.
