Kira began working in the nonprofit sector when she was 18, following in her parents’ footsteps at March of Dimes. Since graduating from university, her focus has been on the issue of gender inequality, specifically the impacts on girls. She worked with Girls Inc. of Halton as a front-line Program Facilitator, worked in fund development, and maximized community partnerships as Development Coordinator, before becoming Director of Programs. More recently, Kira created the She Can! Girls Empowerment Programs at Milton Community Resource Centre, where she works currently.

Kira holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from York University and completed the Diversity in Non-Profits course at Ryerson University. Both have been rich, learning experiences that Kira draws from in her work and life.

She hopes to gain further knowledge and skills from the MPNL program so that she can have a significant impact on gender inequality through an intersectional approach. Kira believes that this formal education experience will enable her to make strategic, long-term decisions and optimize the resources available for this cause.

In her free time, Kira enjoys reading, drinking coffee, and canoe trips with her husband, Eric, and dog, Cali.
