With the metal stylings of “Death Angel” and “Metal Church” she progressed musically into the arena of 80’s glam rock, moving to L.A. and playing amongst the classic bands such as Motley Crue and Poison. After a year of professional playing she returned to her roots in Michigan where she continued to play and started a family, taking a hiatus. In 2012 Mikayla returned to the scene joining the band Steel Wynd as their new bass player.
Today Mikayla has found her place in rock as a new woman and is actively carrying on the traditions of Joan Jett and lita ford.As a new found force for her community she is proving that regardless of her orientation she stands proud and rocks, stressing equality in all that she does.
Currently Mikayla is in the process of forming "Suicide Suzy" Bowling Green, Ohio's premiere shock rock/sleaze band.
