  • Kara minds everyone else's business writing celebrity and entertainment news for Nicki Swift.
  • She also keeps readers up to date on the ins and outs of fashion trends and lifestyle-musts for HelloGiggles.
  • Her work has also been featured in Dinner With Friends magazine, Bust, Elite Daily, Sephora, and Unwritten.


Kara has written for Dinner With Friends — a time when she so graciously reaped the benefits of free cocktails in the spirit of journalism. As a columnist, she interviewed local mixologists and restaurateurs on the magic behind their favorite signature cocktails. At Sephora, Kara showcased her multi-tasking finesse in writing, editing, and maintaining the perfect ratio of lip liner to lip gloss under even the most demanding of deadlines. Her time as a lifestyle writer, office hero to some, is where she preached the good word of lemon water, meditation, and coconut oil for all. As an entertainment writer, Kara takes a deep dive into all things Housewives, Kardashians, and all the award-winning fashion in between. Let's just say, she's sure the world of sports feels cheated by her obvious lack of passion.


Kara earned her bachelor's degree in advertising and public relations at California State University, Dominguez Hills.
