Kara was born in Hartford, Connecticut. She graduated with a Degree in Advanced Communication
Practices and Writing from Boston University in 1992, with an additional concentration in Art History. Kara
worked for several years at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and she would like to create a similar city or
state-run museum in Providence. This will help develop tourism dollars for the city of Providence and the
state of Rhode Island, which in turn will create jobs.
Kara moved from Boston to Rhode Island on New Year's Eve, 1997 and has been a Rhode Islander ever
since. She worked in the Marketing Department at the Providence Civic Center (now the Dunkin' Donuts
Center) for three years, and later became the Director of Sales and Marketing at The University of Rhode
Island's Ryan Center, a 54 million dollar facility, where she helped to bring the project from the construction
phase through to the operation phase. Kara generated millions of dollars for The Ryan Center in contract
agreements and has built a relationship with many of the corporations in the state of Rhode Island. She
was also the co-chair, along with then South Kingstown Chamber of Commerce president Darlene Evans,
of the Southern Rhode Island Business to Business Expo. Kara has promoted numerous events at both
the Dunkin' Donuts Center, and The Ryan Center to help stimulate the local economy and to bring tourism
dollars into the state of Rhode Island.
Kara also served for two years on the South Kingstown Chamber of Commerce board of directors, and she
was on the board of the South County Tourism Council for one year.
Kara is strongly pro-life and pro-family. She is very active in the pro-life community and produces pro-life
television shows statewide. She is also the producer of St. Charles Speaks, which covers the weekly prayer
meeting and many of the community activities at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Providence,
including their food pantry and holiday food drives.
Kara believes in many of the issues that the Tea Party Movement stands for, and believes that less taxation
will result in the life line needed to help stimulate both businesses and citizens to bring the economy back
to life in Rhode Island and for this whole great nation.
