She-TO Boost: Keira, Operations Manager
One hand on the reigns, the other on our hearts, introducing Keira, our Operations Manager! With a project management Midas touch, she brings focus, organization, and purpose to every project she encounters. She hails from the Bahamas, bringing island flair without moving according to island time – except during Bay Days. Keira runs a tight ship here at CTO Boost, but that doesn’t distract her from her burger pursuits, nor take away from her infectious laughter filling our office.
