Originally from Virginia, Kara now lives in Colorado and attends Front Range Community College (FRCC). She is currecntly exploring which courses she needs to obtain an AS with a Degree of Designation in Biology.
Kara's original plan when she started community college two years ago was to transfer to CSU Fort Collins for a major in horticulture and eventually establishing a large, organic and sustainable greenhouse for produce as to grow year round in this region. She is now interested in pursuing a major in environmental studies and forest ecology at CU Boulder. Over these last couple of years her interests have evolved into a much bigger picture, what that picture is exactly, she is still configuring.
