Personal History Jayla was born on Earth to two unjoined Trills, but they relocated back to Trill before Jayla was a year old. She and her sister grew up near the ocean in a temperate climate. Childhood was full of exploring the area around their home, Cliff diving, and, of course, school.

At the age of fifteen, a freak accident during a family camping trip in the wilds of Cambria (second planet of the Zeta system where no electronic technology is allowed) with some friends caused Jayla- the eldest unjoined Trill in their numbers genetically capable of being joined- to carry a symbiont for a short time until they could get to help. Unfortunately, they did not reach civilization until after the bond had formed to Jayla.

As a result, she struggled to come to grips with the joining. She went through a time of depression which culminated in a suicide attempt. Her parents sent her to live with their friend Saraja Jelic, a joined Trill, who helped Jayla to work through the memories and emotions that had overwhelmed her. Eventually, she returned to her cheerful self.

Upon completion of secondary school, Jayla decided to enter Starfleet. Jelic advised medical school, and since Jayla idolized her mentor by this time, she applied to Starfleet Medical and was accepted.

She excelled in her studies, taking to medicine quickly, and graduated near the top of her class. To her delight, she was assigned to an Internship under Doctor Jelic on the USS Impala, where she also completed her residency.

She was assigned to the USS Frost as the chief of Pediatrics due to her ease in dealing with children. The Frost had a substantial child population, leaving Jayla with her hands full. After two years, she was promoted to Assistant Cheif Medical Officer. Following nearly a full year there, she was promoted to CMO of the USS Black Hawk.
