Kira graduated with honors from Pensacola State College with the degree of Associate in Applied Science Accounting Technology with 3.96 GPA.

With nearly a decade of experience in public accounting, Kira has been a cornerstone at Hill Coleman CPA since its inception, dedicating her talents to supporting small and medium-sized enterprises. Her focus is primarily on monthly bookkeeping, payroll, and sales tax, alongside assisting CPAs with the preparation of financial statements and annual income tax returns.

Originally from Ukraine, Kira has had a unique journey, living in Florida for ten years where she loved the sugar-white beaches of Emerald Coast. However, the strong pull of family ties led her back to Ukraine in 2017. Due to the onset of war, she found herself relocating once again in 2022 and has since been living and working remotely from Belgium.

Kira is a devoted mother to two young children, a boy and a girl, and treasures the moments spent exploring the outdoors with them, whether it’s a leisurely stroll in the park or a joyful bike ride during Belgium’s fine weather weekends. An avid learner and traveler, Kira is always on the quest for new knowledge and experiences, with the spirit of adventure and continuous growth both personally and professionally.
