Hey there! My name is Mikayla Barker and I'm currently a social media editor for Yahoo Sports, based out of Los Angeles, California.
A Texas native and lover of social media, I first found my passion for sports under the Friday night lights of Texas high school football. I discovered the power of social media (and got my start in the business) at 16-years-old when I somehow convinced a local radio show in Austin, Texas to take me on as an intern by tweeting at their account. After that, I knew a career in sports was what I wanted to pursue and the rest is history!
I was lucky enough to graduate from Oklahoma State University where I double majored in Sports Media Production and Strategic Communications. While I was there, I was given some pretty amazing opportunities which you can read about in my resume below.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my website and I hope you like what you see!
