Her business ideology is that good business practices transcend individual industry needs.
A fearless and capable competitor, Dayla won the National Biz Bash Award for Best Trade Show and is a BELL winner for best local programming from the Alliance from Women in Media.
Dayla has built her own company, Dayla Arabella Inc., on her reputation as a fearless out-of-the-box thinker, forming powerful and long-lasting partnerships along the way. Her dedication to the power of connections led her to cofound the Boston Women in Media & Entertainment (BWME) in 2012 with beloved Boston broadcaster Candy O’Terry. Now over 200 members strong, the mission of the organization is to connect, inspire and educate women in the media and the arts. BWME’s signature series include The Story Behind Her Success, Quick Connect with Karyn, and Live & Learn.
Dayla firmly believes in giving back her time, talent and treasure to honorable organizations that are making a difference. Among the organizations she supports are: Upstage Lung Cancer, the American Red Cross, Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, Dress for Success, Cradles to Crayons, and the American Cancer Society.
Dayla arrived in Boston via Rhode Island to attend Northeastern University and never left. She absolutely considers herself a true Bostonian at heart – she’s got 20 years of New England Patriots season tickets to prove it. She fell in love with a Jersey boy (and life-long Red Sox fan!) who is equally in love with his own hometown, so they happily reside in both Boston and New Jersey. In their free time you’ll find them on a golf course, in a kayak or at that beach.
