(noun) a person of wide-ranging knowledge or learning
Hi! I’m Kara.
In fourth grade I wrote a list of about 13 careers I wanted to have when I grew up. While professional figure skating is no longer among my aspirations, I have not outgrown my passion and curiosity for diverse fields.
I spent the last six years as a reporter for newspapers and online publications, and I have prior experience in youth education and social justice organizing. I graduated summa cum laude from American University in 2009 with a degree in cultural anthropology and, more recently, completed 27 credits in psychology coursework.
I am currently writing children’s books about trailblazing women in sports and STEM. I live in Northern Virginia (a.k.a. DC metro area) but will always be a Pennsylvanian.
