IN THE RING WITH … KIERA HOGAN

Kiera Hogan has been wrestling professionally since 2015 and an IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Division member since 2017.  She is an Atlanta area resident who lives with her three dogs.  Kiera played varsity soccer for three years in high school, then went to college for one year.

“My parents wanted me to go to college; I wanted to pursue my dream – being a professional wrestler.  So yes, I had to go through a lot to get to where I am now in wrestling, and thankfully, my parents now are head over heels with my wrestling career and super supportive,” she said.

Kiera has the tattoo “Aspire To Inspire” on her left forearm, which truly is her motivation.  “Live your life the way you want to.  Whatever dream you have, follow it … I’m able to follow my dream every day,” she said.
