Scrabble Player Profile: Kaia

nana_kaia_AA004955Kaia is a middle school librarian who loves to inspire her students to reach high goals. She hopes to foster their love of Scrabble, as well!

Kaia appreciates the kindness of the Scrabble community. When her truck’s transmission blew up on the way to the Pittsburgh tournament last spring, players helped her get the truck to a repair shop, drove her around for meals, and someone drove her all the way home.

She enjoys “spoiling herself” with good food, kayaking and canoeing, and attending tournaments. She played her first Scrabble tournament in 2013 and this is her first Nationals.
