Born & raised in Lawrence, Kansas, Kara graduated from Kansas State in 2021. Shortly after graduating, Kara was able to live out her dream of living near the beach in Orange County, CA. In June 2022, Kara relocated to Phoenix, AZ to be closer to her boyfriend.

Much like all Arizona transplants, Kara has fallen completely in love with the Valley. With beautiful weather the majority of the year, some of her favorite outdoor activities are hiking, biking, attending first Fridays, & trying out new restaurants across the Phoenix metro! Kara has an adorable three-year-old kitty named Harlow who she loves deeply. When she’s not Linking, Kara’s other hobbies include reading, playing tennis, shopping, & exercising.

Kara’s spirit animal is a dolphin because of her love for the ocean. She identifies with them because they are always happy & bring others so much joy!

Why LINK x LOU®? Kara is proud to represent LINK x LOU® because we offer such sentimental pieces of jewelry! It's simple, beautiful & continues to shine for years to come. The experience of Getting Linked has been one Kara has shared with her best friends & family, & still remembers the exact moment of Getting Linked together. It’s a special memory that Kara will remember every time she looks at my chains.

Fun fact: Kara loves watching cheesy reality TV! It’s her guilty pleasure :)
