Dogs and cats who come to see Kara can feel how much she loves them—she even talks to them throughout the entire groom. Her spirit animal is the persistent, protective tiger.
Kara grew up in Baltimore and started working with animals, as a bather and fluff dryer, when she was just 15 years old. She has more than 12 years experience grooming animals and joined the AHBC team in February 2017.
Kara loves the variety of the job. Every day—and every pet—at AHBC is different! She loves taking shelter animals and making them clean, and whole, again. She believes there is nothing more memorable and rewarding than turning a neglected, distressed animal into a happy, beautiful creature.
Kara’s hobbies include running, rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, and bowling. She loves getting the AHBC team together for painting classes. She likes to cook and is definitely a foodie! Kara makes the most delicious meatballs for our AHBC potluck lunches.
Kara’s motto is: “In everything, do 100 percent.”
