About Kara

Kara’s experience is a combination of home health care and upper level healthcare administration. She’s had a love for seniors since she began volunteering in senior communities at a young age, and is thrilled to have found a career with her favorite population. Her passion for the patient experience drives everything she does and makes her a go-to resource for seniors and professionals alike.

What I'm passionate about:

My enthusiasm for life is contagious – my glass is always overflowing! I love to spend time in my community by volunteering with organizations like Almost Home Kids, Arbor Circle, The Special Olympics, and more. I also love spending time in Northern Michigan, attending Michigan State sporting events (Go Green!), and spending time with my friends, family, and two year old labradoodle, Oliver.

A Note From Kara

I wake up in the morning excited to help others. My goal is to be an extension of you for any of your seniors who may need a bit of extra assistance as they navigate their next steps. While working with me, you can count on interactions driven by integrity, passion, and fun!
