Kayla Sanders

Marketing Director


My personal motivation comes from helping others take their next step or reach their goal. While I’m task-oriented by nature, it is serving and developing the dreams of others that truly drives me.

My path to the real estate industry has been an unconventional one compared to most. Growing up in Madison, Alabama, I attended and graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Marketing and Communication. My first job post-graduation was as Women’s Associate for the college ministry of First Baptist Church of Opelika where I had the opportunity to develop my creative and leadership skills. In 2014, I married my husband, Parker, and we relocated to Baldwin County. Prior to joining the Katapult team, I worked for 3Circle Church in Fairhope, AL, as their Communication Director.

In my present role, I have the joy of creating and implementing strategies that make Katapult top of mind for those considering commercial real estate and investment. While the responsibilities of the job are not new to me, I am appreciative to work alongside a team of experts as I learn the real estate industry.

How did your early life shape your outlook?

God has blessed me with great parents. Growing up, their dedication to our church aided in bringing me to the faith that I still stand strong in today. No words can truly capture how grateful I am to them for that. They also instilled in me the mindset of hard work. I can remember multiple childhood instances where they taught me to give my best, keep commitments, and finish well.

What is your favorite travel destination to date?

In my life, I have had the great fortune to travel to some beautiful, interesting, exciting, and eye-opening places. But one of my all-time favorite places will always be Disney World and Universal (specifically, Harry Potter World).
