Kara is a born and raised Iowa girl. She toured the state performing while still in high school and along the way worked with friends who convinced her to attend Millikin University in Decatur, IL. Graduating with a BFA in Musical Theatre and a Minor in Dance she moved out to New York and lived in her kitchen for a year.
Since then she has seen the world performing on two national tours, two cruise ships, and at several regional theatres.
When not performing Kara works as a brand ambassador and a promotional model for several NYC marketing companies. She is also a choreographer, die hard NY Rangers fan, and is obsessed with her two nephews.
Kara lives in Astoria, Queens with her husband, Jeff.
