Kara joined SPMB in 2020 as the first Project Coordinator at our Denver office. She has Executive Assistant experience in the startup and VC worlds, as well as Project Management experience in advertising. Kara grew up in San Diego, moved to San Francisco to further her career, and finally landed in Denver to get closer to the mountains!
In Kara’s free time she enjoys backpacking, traveling, breakfast, and petting all the dogs.
Where have you traveled and where would you still like to go?
In 2016, I went on a four month backpacking trip through Chile, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia. This was my first time backpacking and only my second international trip. I have since traveled in Central America and Indonesia, but Greece, Thailand, and Sri Lanka are next on my shortlist!
What’s the most non traditional job you’ve ever had?
In college I interned as an Event Coordinator at the Make-A-Wish Foundation, San Diego. In this role, I had the opportunity to respond to wishes and plan logistics related to specific wish projects. To date, this is still one of the most fulfilling jobs I’ve ever had.
What is the one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I was voted “Funniest Person” in 5th grade, and “Class Clown” of my High School. Middle School was clearly not my best showing…
