About me: Hi everyone! My name is Kira and I'm in the Foster School of Business. I'm from the PNW so I love dogs, hiking, and running. I'm definitely a fan of spontaneous adventures, baking, and reading. I'm in both the Interdisciplinary Honors program and the Foster Departmental Honors. I currently work in a Hematology research lab so feel free to ask me questions about that as well :)
