“A difficult problem is nothing more than an opportunity to learn and grow.”
Kyra Dragone is a connector of people. A frequent traveler, she seeks out new experiences that expose her to new places, unfamiliar cultures, and differing opinions. She enjoys connecting people she meets to others around them who can help them work more effectively and efficiently.
Kyra approaches new challenges by first seeking to understand, learning not only how things are done today, but also what concerns people have about changing how they do them. She began her career at W.L. Gore & Associates, where she held roles in cross-functional project delivery, continuous improvement and operations, and identified more than $2 million in projected costs savings for one client alone. Kyra holds a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from Lehigh University.
