Director of Development, Outreach, and Communications
Kiera became connected to Touchstone in her previous role as the director of Fig Bethlehem magazine, and has been a fan ever since—serving on various committees and attending performances as a devoted audience member before “officially” joining the team in the summer of 2022. A graduate of Moravian University, Kiera spent several years as a classroom teacher before earning her Ed.M. in Arts in Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2000. She worked in the Boston area in arts education, development, and fundraising at cultural institutions including Boston Lyric Opera, The Museum of Science, and Boston Early Music Festival before returning to Bethlehem in 2013. A former member of the Bach Choir of Bethlehem, she sits on the steering committee for the IceHouse Performing Arts Collaborative, and is a board member for her former Cambridge, MA-based choral ensemble, Musica Sacra. The daughter of a music teacher, Kiera’s journey to this role has been shaped by a lifetime of arts experiences—from marching band to theatre to choral singing, and more—that have shaped her passion for advocating for the arts.
