Bryan’s unique qualifications include:
Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, it was no surprise that Kira was ready for the challenge when Bryan started talking about opening a ‘small, dog training business’.
Kira graduated from Hollins College in Roanoke, VA, with a degree in Economics and Business in 1993. She has always had an adventurous spirit and a willingness to try new things. This has led her to internships, ballet intensives and study abroad programs in Washington, DC, New York City and London. Kira’s warm personality and soft, southern accent opened doors for her that probably would have remained closed for others, with perhaps the highlight being a brief stint with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus as the pre-show marketing coordinator when she was a Junior in college. After an internship with The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company in New York City, Kira was hired by The Ritz-Carlton in Washington DC upon graduation. It was there that she learned the true meaning of customer service and it is The Ritz-Carlton model that is used at Taming the Wild for how our clients and guests are treated.
After years of working in 5-star hotels, Kira moved on to working with children. She became a certified Montessori teacher in the Infant / Toddler level, Early Childhood level and the School Management level. She has played an integral part in starting Montessori schools in Jackson, MS and Tupelo, MS before moving to Memphis.
Now, Kira enjoys spending time traveling with Bryan (when they can!), walking the riverwalk with Captain and Dembe, sitting with The Rats (morkies, Dave and Po) in her lap and watching her children, Savanna and Cooper grow up right before her eyes.
