Kara walked onto the Gonzaga women's rowing team in 2012 and was a member of the first Gonzaga team to appear at the NCAA Championships. She was named a 2016 Division I Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association First-Team All-American. Following graduation, she moved to Saratoga Springs, N.Y., to start sculling with the ARION program, coached by Eric Catalano. Her college coaches, Glenn Putrae, Kari Durgan, and Marisa Wortman, were influential in her decision to continue training, and none of it would be possible without the unyielding support of her mom. When not rowing, Kara enjoys watching Netflix, rewatching movies, being outdoors, petting cats, and hanging out with friends.
