Meet the Staff: Kara

If you’ve visited the new Big River West County location, you may have met Kara before, but learn a little bit more about this friendly, knowledgeable staff member in her own words:

“My name is Kara, and I have lived in St. Louis my whole life. I grew up in Town & Country and went to Principia. I started working at Big River in May 2017 and love it! While I did not run in high school or college, I did play basketball. I went to McKendree University in Lebanon, IL where I met my husband, Scott. We got married two days before I started working at Big River! I love working at Big River because it does not feel like a “job” to me. I enjoy helping and talking with people so this is a perfect job for that! In my spare time, I love to be active and travel. My husband and I have a year-old Border Collie/Golden Retriever mix named Kai. We enjoy taking him to Longview Park off Clayton Road. My husband and I have an adventurous spirit for traveling. We want to go to Iceland on our next big excursion! Visit me at Big River West County!”
