MEET THE RX TEAM
Kaira is the Project Lead on the IL HPP initatives. From a young age, Kaira has had a passion for leadership development, helping others, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This stayed with her throughout her college experience at the University of Alabama where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a focus on interpersonal relationships, addiction, and human growth and development. She began her career working with parents of young children which lead to her learning more about the world of prevention. After being in the prevention field for five years, she has continued to be inspired by her long-lasting passions. Kaira’s favorite aspect of the Illinois Human Performance Project is having the opportunity to enhance the well-being of young people through education. When she is not rooting on her college football team or in the office, Kaira enjoys spending time with her family and volunteering with a local animal rescue.
