Coordinator of Programming and Community Engagement

Kiera is excited to be starting her journey at Lake Louise. It’s important to her to be making a direct impact in the people around her and she knows that Lake Louise is the perfect positive environment for personal and spiritual growth. 
 
When Kiera is not at Lake Louise, you can find her playing with her cats, Finn and Dempsey, crocheting, working on her first novel, baking or developing her photography skills in the beauty of Northern Michigan.
 
After one Summer at Lake Louise, Kiera has developed one memory that has stuck with her. It happened at the climbing tree, when a camper told her they were scared of heights but wanted to try on a harness. From there, they kept taking baby steps to conquer their fear until they were sitting on a branch. She loves that she has such a direct correlation to kids learning they can do hard things.
