Region: Bay Area – Water
Project(s): Sonoma County Water Agency – Stormwater Resource Planning
Kara is a California native and 2015 graduate of Sonoma State University where she received her BS in Environmental Studies and Planning with a focus on Water Resource Management. She is excited to be returning to cooler weather after a year as an AmeriCorps member in the Sierra Nevada foothills working on restoration and environmental education in headwater watersheds. Kara is particularly interested in exploring the water and land use nexus, but really finds all things planning fascinating. In her free time she likes to throw and chase frisbees, stare up at big trees and listen to people, especially those who are generational stewards of local landscapes.
