Kara has always relished the written word. A recovering journalist, Kara is a writer who specializes in crafting compelling press releases and effective social media campaigns that fuel engagement, increase brand awareness and drive leads.

Hailing from the great state of Maryland, Kara is passionate about both crab cakes and football. When she isn’t crafting content, Kara can be found coffee crawling through Kansas City or at Bar K with her goldendoodle, Roscoe.
