Kara has been with the CCLC since 2004. On a daily basis she finds herself engaged and stretched as CCLC’s lead teacher for the Cobscook Experiential Program, and was part of the team that brought the Cobscook Program to life in 2010. Prior to that, Kara worked as CCLC’s Community Programs Director. A Michigan native, Kara first came to Maine in 2003 as a graduate student in in the Audubon Expedition Institute (now the Expedition Education Institute). Her group met with the folks who were working to create the CCLC, which led to a semester-long internship (during which she taught her first class for CCLC – Introduction to Irish Whistle). That internship led to work, which has led to a life – home, family and fulfilling work – in Trescott on the shores of Whiting Bay.
In addition to her work with CCLC, Kara is a volunteer and board member with the Downeast Coastal Conservancy, and an active musician and regular performer in Downeast Maine. She holds a BS in geology from Western Michigan University and a MS in Environmental Education from Lesley University. She enjoys hiking the beautiful trails of eastern Maine with her family and their dogs, and playing guitar, whistle, accordion, and sometimes bagpipes with her bandmates. Kara is an avid Star Trek aficionado, and likes making maple syrup each spring.
