Kira currently lives in Central Florida, though she was born and raised in New Jersey and lived in New York City for five years while going to Hunter College for a degree to become a Spanish to English Translator. It was at the age of twenty-one, that she decided to quit college and open her home-based travel agency, My Paradise Planner. After moving to Florida a few years later, she expanded her agency and it now has sixteen agents on board, while continuing to grow. Her passion for travel and social media was a match made in heaven that she credits much of her success to.
In 2011, Kira was named by Travel Agent Magazine as one of the “Top 30 Travel Agents Under 30” and then named again as one of their "Top 25 Agents of 2013". However, she has most notably propelled herself into the industry spotlight by becoming a top producing Sandals Specialist as one of their Chairman’s Royal Club members. Her dedication to the resort brand has earned her several coveted Sandals Travel Agency Recognition (S.T.A.R.) awards, including their first ever Social Media award––which she has consistently earned these past two years.
