Program Manager, Canyons District

Kira is the Program Manager for schools in the Canyons School District. She had her first experience as a volunteer through her work over 11 years ago. Since then she has had opportunity to work with the PTA coordinating volunteers and being the volunteer in her children’s classes. She loves seeing the kids get excited about learning and understanding the principles taught through Junior Achievement. She knows that it is so important for each student to have this great opportunity to learn these lessons.

 She and her husband have two wonderful kids. They love to spend time as a family hiking in the mountains, playing games together and learning new things. She loves to read, cook, travel and discover the world through the eyes of her children.​
