As a economist, an entrepreneur well versed in starting a small business, a writer, and a breast cancer survivor, Kara offers a unique perspective on life and what it takes for us as women to balance all it hands us and empower our own happiness. She shares her inspirational journey and fundamental tools to embolden women to live the life they want and come to terms with what no longer serves them.
Kara’s personal and professional journey is chronicled by Marlo Thomas in her book, It Ain’t Over … Till It’s Over, and has been featured on The Today Show, MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and by Dr. Jill Biden at the Vice President’s 2015 Breast Cancer Awareness Reception. Kara is a contributor to the Huffington Post, MSNBC’s Know Your Value Column, NOU Magazine, and Cure Diva, among others.

- THE ESSENTIALS TO HAVING YOUR ALL: WHY HAVING IT ALL SUCKS AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT
- SEVEN RULES EVERY WOMAN MUST FOLLOW TO EMBOLDEN AND ENRICH THEIR LIVES

“Kara led a session for 30 of our female employees to share her best practices for finding and being a mentor. The session was empowering and has encouraged stronger ties and networking amongst our female employees. Kara is an energetic presenter, whom we strongly endorse and encourage others to consider using. She is a motivating presence and genuinely cares about the development of women as leaders. We look forward to engaging Kara more as a facilitator in the future.” – Emily G., Optoro
“Kara speaks from the heart. Whether it is a one-on-one conversation or a packed room, she listens and engages with you where you are. Kara’s gift of storytelling is truly remarkable. I first experienced Kara at a NAWBO-DC event where she spoke about having your all. I could tell that the messages she shared that day spoke to every individual in the room on both personally and professionally. Kara’s messages and lessons learned from that day challenge and inspire me daily.” – Arti V., Advancing Synergy
