Outreach & Partnerships Coordinator/Support Group Facilitator, Restaurant After Hours
Kiri is a graduate student studying Creative Arts Therapy at Pratt Institute. She has experience working front-of-house positions in bakeries, cafes, bars, restaurants, and currently is working as a host in a well-known restaurant and wine bar in Brooklyn, NY.
The virtual support groups are important to her because she has witnessed and experienced first-hand the particular strain on mental health that occurs in the hospitality industry. She feels strongly about creating and holding spaces where peer-to-peer connection, discussion, and healing is encouraged and supported.
