Kara was born and raised in the Greater Cincinnati area, where she graduated from NKU with her BA and went on to complete her MA at Mount St. Joseph University. Kara comes to Sweet Cheeks with a decade of supply chain experience across several global corporations. Prior to joining our team, she spent several years focused on serving youth who are at risk in our city as a local non-profit program and project manager. In addition to that work, Kara also has a passion for diversity, equity and inclusion. She occasionally teaches a course on Christian Justice at Mount St. Joseph University and has also served as a founder and the leader of a team at her previous organization which worked to educate staff and address bias and prejudice as it relates to race, gender, nationality and class. When not working, Kara enjoys volunteering at her local church, reading, hiking, camping and creating art. She also likes traveling nationally and internationally. She has visited Italy, Switzerland, France, India, Belgium, the Netherlands, Israel and Ireland – and hopes to visit more countries in the future.
