Kiera was the 2012-2013 Boston Toastmasters President. When she joined Boston Toastmasters, to foster her skill and confidence in her public speaking abilities, she never expected to be president.

Boston Toastmasters allows her a great opportunity to hone her craft in front of an audience while at the same time helping other members to develop as better public speakers. She loves inspiring people to find the confidence and comfort needed to speak in front of an audience. Read more
