Kyra won over the judges with her energy and enthusiasm. While earning a Bachelor of Commerce in hospitality and tourism management, she organized events including an Orientation Week for 800 students. After graduation, she went to work as a program manager for a major incentive house, where she spent two years planning and executing programs. She then crossed the industry street to the supplier side. Working at a leading luxury hotel, she was able to build her knowledge of the industry. This spring, she returned to her planner roots. An active member of MPI, she serves on committees and contributes to her local chapter’s magazine. Grateful for the support she’s received in her career, she works hard to ensure that she is just as helpful to others looking for direction and assistance.
