Who is Kayla Cote

North Dakota has always been my home. I was born in Rugby and raised in Willow City. No matter where I've been, the family farm is my sanctuary. It's the place I go to when I need to get away and recharge.

When I was young, I was fearless and loved to entertain. I enjoyed making people smile and making people laugh. When I went to elementary school, I had a rude awakening and was very confused when people didn't want to be my friend. I wasn't popular.

As the creative spirit I was, I turned to my old cassette tape player and hit the record button to record my first "radio show", as I called it. I started recording to help cope with all my childhood insecurities. I would bring friends on the show, talk about being bullied, the latest toy trends and celebrity crushes. Talking helped me process what I was going through at the time.

It's really hard to be different or to be not like the rest, and it took me into my 30s to realize that uniqueness is something that should be celebrated, and if it weren't for our differences, life would be pretty boring.

Fast forward to 2019, I was offered to write and produce my own live radio show on Radio Free Fargo KRFF 95.9. Gaining experience in radio was the catalyst for starting my podcast. The most important piece of advice I learned while in radio is that conversation is the catalyst to discovery. You can learn from anyone you have a conversation with, even if it's simply an encounter with someone that you met for only a moment. These little moments of connection can change lives.

During the pandemic in 2020, I had the courage to start producing "The Wow Factor with Kay", a podcast focused on holistic health and wellness. As I enter into season two of the podcast, the focus is to help people discover their God given gifts and how to live a lifestyle in alignment with them.

I've been in the fitness and wellness industry for over a decade and am currently a certified group fitness instructor with Fly Fitness in Fargo. I've spent the last two years interviewing leaders in the industry such as doctors, functional medicine specialists and registered dietitians.

Moving forward, my goal is to share stories from myself and my guests to remind listeners they are accepted for who they are because ladies, we deserve to feel really, really good!

Leafy greens are popping in area gardens. If you're not a big fan of kale, but still want the nutritional benefit, try adding some to a smoothie. In this episode of NewsMD's "Health Fusion," Viv Williams shares a favorite green smoothie recipe that even some of the most kale-adverse people will like. Honest!
Only 7 percent of U.S. adults have optimal measures of health. But you can take steps to make your numbers better. In this Health Fusion column, Viv Williams explores a study about our nation's cardiometabolic health status. And she shares her own lifestyle lapses in judgement.
Experts warn that simply claiming the benefits may create paper trails for law enforcement officials in states criminalizing abortion. That will complicate life for the dozens of corporations promising to protect, or even expand, the abortion benefits for employees and their dependents.
In Minnesota, abortion is protected by the state’s constitution and is legal up to the point of viability, which is generally thought to begin at about 24 weeks, when the fetus can survive outside the womb. Those who work with Minnesotans who seek abortions say barriers, both legal and practical, forced some to travel to Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, Washington, D.C., and Wisconsin even prior to the Supreme Court’s decision.
