Kayla Halsey, M.Sc.

Program Associate
Kayla Halsey, M.Sc., is a program associate for Advocates for Human Potential (AHP) and is currently serving as a grantee liaison and data trainer for California’s Behavioral Health Workforce Development Project. Ms. Halsey joined AHP after working as a program research specialist for a family violence nonprofit organization, specifically exploring trauma recovery and polyvictimization. Before moving back to the United States for this role, she spent time in Jordan conducting qualitative research on policy-related barriers and facilitators to health care access for Syrian and Palestine refugees. The self-designed qualitative research project included interviews with Palestine and Syrian refugees, UNRWA health staff, and UNHCR partner non-governmental organization health staff in three different camps across Jordan. This fieldwork marked the completion of Ms. Halsy’s master's in international health coursework from the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in cultural anthropology and public health from the University of Arizona and has a history of involvement in national and international refugee/migrant aid efforts.
