Yira was born and raised in Klamath Falls. She has always loved helping others, which is why she decided to become a DSP the moment she graduated high school. She took pride in assisting others in their daily lives and loved helping them achieve their goals.

Yira currently lives with her boyfriend of 4 years, who is a DSP. She has 4 fur babies, 3 crazy dogs and 1 sassy cat. Her dogs are named Bagel, Cereal and Apple Fritter and her cat is named Bean. Yira is an extreme animal lover and is constantly rescuing different animals. In her free time, she likes to garden and explore the outdoors with her dogs and friends.

She hopes to continue to grow in this field and learn from colleagues. She is very grateful to Connections Case Mgmt for this opportunity to positively impact her community.
