Kara graduated in 1988 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Civil & Environmental Engineering degree. After graduation, she moved to San Francisco and worked with the Cities of Fremont, Union City, and Newark, California as a regional recycling coordinator. After a temporary assignment as the Chief Science Officer at a commercial food and yard waste composting firm in New Jersey, she embarked on a solo backpacking journey through the Canadian Rockies.
Her love of the mountains inspired her to settle in Colorado, where she worked for the City of Boulder for 27 years. Kara and her team worked to develop a “circular materials” strategy for the city of Boulder - to move beyond recycling and composting waste and into the larger system of material use and consumption.
After her February retirement from working full-time at the City of Boulder, Kara is in the process of launching circular economy initiatives through her consulting company, M&M&M.
