Kiara is a multi-faceted theatre artist: director, actor, dancer, playwright, stage manager, and theatre administrator. A native of Crawfordsville, Indiana, her interest in performance began with dance, which has been in her life since the age of three. Theatre followed shortly thereafter and it has been her passion ever since. She received her training at Indiana State University where she double-majored in Theater and Communications with a minor in Dance. During her time at ISU Kiara had the opportunity to participate in a broad range of performance including musical theatre, devised work, and American classics. As a theatre artist her interests center on honest story-telling with genres ranging from psychological horror to farce. Joining Monument in 2018, Kiara was named the Marketing Director in the summer of 2020.
