Kara was raised in Water Valley, Alberta for part of her childhood and then moved to Calgary for the remainder where she completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Alberta College of Art and Design. While finishing up her degree, she started down the path of working as an Optometric Assistant.
With 6 years of optical experience, Kara is a Canadian Certified Optometric Assistant and has been a part of the team at Cochrane Family Vision since October 2016. Patient care is what she enjoys the most about her career. One of the most satisfying feelings for her comes from aiding someone to see the beautiful world around them better.
After getting married in Santorini, Greece in 2012, Kara and her husband made Cochrane home in 2015. She is an avid disc dog player and has travelled across Western Canada and into the USA to compete at an international level. In her spare time, you will find Kara outdoors with her dogs!
