Kara was born and raised right outside of Washington, DC, but has since fallen for California’s coasts and mountains. At Stanford, her love for wildlife and being outside brought her to the Earth Systems program, and she never looked back. Kara’s undergraduate studies focused on conservation biology, ecology, and marine sciences, and they brought her around the world: forestry fieldwork in Chile, Argentina, and Mexico; climate change negotiations research in Paris; and agricultural studies in Belize. Looking forward, Kara hopes to make a positive impact on the Earth and people by delving deeper into the world of environmental policy. After spending a year working on environmental issues in the federal government in her native DC, she is eager to be back on campus and serve as the Head TA for Earth Systems 10 this year. In this capacity, she hopes to educate students about important environmental issues and instill in them a sense of stewardship for Earth’s many interconnected systems. When she’s not in the Earth Systems office, you can probably find her practicing figure skating or aerial silks, or adventuring in a new place.
