Meet Kayla Malatek, one of our Herd Health Assistants!

Kayla started her career in the deer industry as an intern for Vara Ranch in the summer of 2021. She enjoyed the family-oriented work atmosphere and the fawns, which led her to the decision to work here full-time. She graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor’s in Animal Science. She is an incredible addition to the team because she is honest, respectful, trustworthy, and determined. Her favorite thing to do at the ranch is bottle-feed fawns and her favorite animal is the Red Stag. Kayla’s perfect day would include playing fetch with her dog, Shasta, and spending time with her family.
