After graduating Penn State University with a degree in Communications & Theatre, she embarked on her journey to Los Angeles to pursue her deep-rooted dream of acting.

Her extensive training with casting directors and coaches such as Phaedra Harris, Richard Lawson and Aaron Speiser acting studios has helped her land several feature films, stage plays and commercials. She exemplifies hard work, which is why she has risen tremendously.

Kevalena credits her family and faith for her drive, determination and tenacity. She refuses to be just another girl chasing a dream. Everett understands that acting is an uphill journey but as long as she keeps walking in her faith nothing will keep her from the success she claimed as that little girl in Philadelphia!
