Vice President of Fundraising


Cara, originally from Jefferson City, Missouri, migrated to Kansas City after graduating from the University of Central Missouri where she joined the Delta Pi Chapter of AOII. By day, Cara works in food marketing and by night works towards her graduate degree online through the University of Missouri – Columbia.

When she’s not writing about food or academic research, you can find Cara on a jogging trail or in the yoga studio. She also enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants and baking (food is clearly a common theme in her life). She shares her home and heart with her adopted fur baby, Harvey.

Cara is excited to take on her first role in the AOII alumni group as VP of Fundraising and to become more involved with this dynamic group of women.
