With a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Washington, Shira has spent her career working at nonprofits at all stages of their organizational development.
She is thrilled to be involved with HeadCount at an exciting time in its growth. She brings to HeadCount a passion for renewing the natural link between music and activism, as well as expertise in nonprofit management. Prior to coming to HeadCount, Shira developed and ran an after-school program for at-risk youth in East Harlem, and worked as a program director at Generation Schools.
A certified yoga instructor, Shira also teaches yoga at several studios in Brooklyn and to private clients in the area. Her passion for the transformative power of yoga is matched only by her passion for music, and her strong belief that the incredible energy at live shows should be harnessed and utilized as a force for social change. She lives in Brooklyn with her family.
