Born, raised and educated in the unceded, traditional territory of Mi'kma'ki, the ancestral homelands of the Beothuk, and the One Dish Spoon Territory (also known as Newfoundland, New Brunswick, and Toronto), Kara joined Queer Yukon as it grows as a vibrant workplace, community cente, and influence in the Yukon.
Kara is a registered Social Worker and has contributed to safer spaces in the fields of women, children and families, mental health and trauma, gender and social justice, housing and decolonization, truth and reconciliation. Kara enjoys organizational capacity building, because well-built infrastructure supports people to pursue their passions.
Outside of work, Kara loves spending time with family at home and on the Millenium Trail.
