Kira Limer is Report for America's Impact and Evaluation Manager. Limer studied studio art in college, focusing on textiles and printmaking, before switching gears to pursue a Masters of Library Science with a certificate in Archives and Records Management. Her interest in archives and storytelling drew her to StoryCorps, where she strengthened her dedication to the value of the stories of everyday people and the importance of amplifying those that are typically underreported. Limer spent 12 years at StoryCorps, along the way finding her true calling in program evaluation. She is passionate about helping organizations use data to support their missions, find elegant solutions to systems issues, and maintain the utmost integrity and equity in all they do. An avid environmentalist and outdoors person, Limer loves hiking, gardening, and any activities that bring her close to nature, from cross country skiing to snorkeling. When not outside, she enjoys puzzles of all kinds (jigsaw, crossword, Wordle, etc!), baking, and yoga. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, son, dog, cat, and many plants.
