BEHIND THE SMILE
Kara was raised in Park Ridge, Illinois (a northwest subarb of Chicago). She started performing at a young age in dance recitals and ice skating competitions.
When she was 10 years old, Kara landed the role of Kirsten in The American Girl's Revue at The American Girl Place, downtown Chicago. She continued with the show for 5 years, eventually adding the roles of Kit and Molly.
She received training from the Music Theatre Program at Baldwin Wallace University under the direction of Victoria Bussert.
In her spare time, Kara enjoys hula hooping, attempting recipes from Pinterest, and playing with her lop-eared bunnies: Sunny and Clover.
