About Kara

Kara has successfully worked in sales & marketing, client services and business development, in multiple industries, for over 25 years. She is very skilled in building relationships, identifying needs and providing solutions. Kara has also worked with seniors and their families for over 9 years, both in senior services and housing. Before becoming an Advisor for A place for Mom, Kara was a Community Relations Director at an assisted living community. Kara became interested in helping seniors through her time volunteering with Meals on Wheels and as an advocate for Elders In Action. She returned to school to earn a degree in Gerontology and has never looked back! Her diverse background and her passion for helping seniors provide her with a wealth of resources to offer families and seniors.

What I'm passionate about:

I am an avid reader and lifelong learner I enjoy history and current events. My passion is being a mother to a wonderful young man who is embarking on his own life journey. I am also “Mom” to three dogs that are a source of joy and, at times, exasperation! Some of my best friends are the seniors who live at the community I worked in and I still go and visit them regularly. I have very close friendships with some of their adult children. I got to know families so well during their discovery and move-n process. They entrusted me with their very personal information as well as their treasured mother, father and, sometimes, both! I consider it an honor and a privilege to be entrusted with the care of a beloved family member and I take it very and personally.

A Note From Kara

I watched my family go through the process of finding appropriate care options for my grandparents. There were many things to consider and I know how stressful these decisions can be. I find it extremely rewarding to help people find the right fit for their loved-one or themselves. I am an attentive listener and want to ease your stress during this difficult process. I look forward to helping you through this important time in your family’s lives. I will work tirelessly to help you find what you are looking for and will be a supportive ally and shoulder for you every step of the journey!
