GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS MANAGER

Kara is the Government Affairs Manager for Michigan LCV and is based out of the Lansing and Grand Rapids offices.

In 2017, Kara will be working towards guaranteeing that Michigan legislators prioritize clean energy, ensuring that Michigan residents have access clean water and protecting Michigan’s public lands and parks. Growing up in Lansing, Kara developed a passion for policy and politics and currently calls Grand Rapids home.

In the spring of 2015, Kara graduated from Grand Valley State University where she received a degree in Political Science with a focus on political thought and environmental policy. Prior to working for Michigan LCV, she held the position of President for the GVSU College Democrats and gained experience through internships in legislative offices, on campaigns and at local non-profit organizations. Outside of work, Kara enjoys exploring Michigan, volunteering, and most of all, going on adventures with her two rescued Australian Cattle Dogs.
