She holds a bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems from Utah State University and an MBA from Iowa State University. During her decade long career in the Direct Selling industry, Gaya has worked with mature billion-dollar companies to newer and smaller companies that are going through hyper growth stage both in traditional multi-level marketing and party plan structures. 

Gaya has a wide range of experience managing all aspects of a business from sales and marketing, operations, finance to international expansion. Having lived in 3 countries (Sri Lanka, Malaysia and United States); and launched and managed businesses in 5 continents, Gaya’s international experience will come in handy as Kalaia expands outside of the United States. 

Gaya and her husband have a beautiful four-year-old daughter, Maya, and a yellow lab, AJ, who is convinced that he is the baby boy of the family.
