Kara was born in Abington, PA and raised in Southern New Jersey. She grew up around animals and volunteered at small animal hospitals as well as a handicapped horseback riding facility.
She had the opportunity to visit the Wilmington area several times while she studied Veterinary Medicine at NC State. After finishing vet school, she went into private practice in California, but longed for the east coast and to be closer to friends and family. When Atlantic was looking for another vet, she jumped at the chance to live in this community. Kara's experience with her own pets as well as fostering many needy animals helps her to understand how owners feel about their animals. She loves helping people take care of their pets!
