Founder, Healthy Women Leaders


Kalia is the founder of the Denver-based networking collective Healthy Women Leaders. Healthy Women Leaders is a group of passionate women in leadership who choose to unapologetically focus on their health, develop their personal power, and generally kick ass.

In addition to Healthy Women Leaders, Kalia is also the CEO and Co-Founder of Skylarq Digital, a software development agency. She is a high-energy digital strategist with more than a decade of experience building and perfecting digital solutions.

Kalia is a major health geek and loves lifting weights, running, hiking, and skiing all over Colorado. Her health-focused pursuits also go beyond just the physical realm - she is a regular meditator and strives to bring mindfulness into her everyday life.

Kalia holds a BS in Graphic Design from Northeastern University. She is the proud mother to two children and when it’s time for a break, she can be found enjoying Colorado's famous craft beer. Originally hailing from a big family in Boston, this transplant is doing everything she can to find epic new adventures in the mountains.
