Kara has been part of the American Spa team since 2008. Although she left the position as art director and relocated to Switzerland for 2 years in 2014, she returned to the job in 2017 because she loves her job and team so much! She graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor's degree in Journalism with a concentration in design. Her career in NYC started with a design internship at SpaFinder magazine, followed by a designer position at Family Circle magazine for two years before joining the American Spa staff. When she’s not working, she’s chasing her wild almost-2-year-old son around, hiking, baking, or finding DIY projects around the house.
