A Massey University graduate, she initially worked in companion animal practice and also contributed to veterinary nursing training programs. From there she worked as a bovine tuberculosis disease manager for over six years, where she acquired experience in problem solving and data analysis and how to effectively communicate with stakeholders of different backgrounds, from scientists to farmers. Kara contributes her skills to many of our projects and loves a job done efficiently and well. When she’s not in the office, Kara enjoys playing Irish music, cycling, tramping and sustainably gardening on her lifestyle block.
