Kiarra

I was born and raised in a small town called Fairview, 6 hours north of St. Albert. I moved to Edmonton in 2018 to begin the NAIT Dental Assistant program and I graduated in 2020, earning an award for academic honour standing in a number of program courses.

My small town life was filled with many school sports such as basketball and volleyball. I was also a member of the Fairview Ukrainian dance group for 14 years and traveled all across the province competing. I’ve always enjoyed the dental field and I am proud to be a part of it.

Learning new things and meeting new people everyday is very important to me.
