Senior Development Coordinator
When Kara was 20, she heard the three words nobody wants to hear – You have cancer. It was her sophomore year at Hillsdale College in Michigan. She was on the basketball team, and life was good. But then life as she knew it stopped completely.
After treatment, Kara finished her degree, plus a Master’s at Eastern Virginia Medical School, and then worked as a surgical assistant. But fate and a desire to give back led her to Roc Solid, where she is responsible for financial growth in North Carolina and beyond to support our mission and programs.
Kara’s a goal-driven team member who makes people feel comfortable in any situation and likes to have fun in the process.
“Working with Roc Solid is my opportunity to not ‘waste’ my cancer,” she says. “There’s nothing I could be more passionate about.”
