Kara is a former public relations professional at FleishmanHillard (Bangkok) whose work focused primarily on education, corporate communications, and health care with local and international clients. She holds a master’s degree in health communication from Indiana University and is very passionate about education, health care, and technology.

As a marketing project manager at Indiana University, Kara manages communications and marketing project workflow with internal teams and actualizes the university's goal of efficient and cost-effective delivery of creative work.

Kara was born and raised in Thailand, and for this particular reason, she is entertained by snowfall but not the “Indy cold.” Apart from hanging out with her needy cat, Sam, Kara enjoys baking, reading, binge-watching Netflix series, and checking out new hiking spots with her husband in her free time. She also enjoys trying local Thai restaurants to find out which place makes the most authentic Thai food.
