“If there ever was the “best in class” this lady is it. Kara understood the importance of inbound marketing and lead nurturing long before the technology industry and many of her peers. Kara is progressive and innovative when it comes to lead generation, tracking and sales enablement. She’s an important asset to any sales and marketing aligned team.”

Tom Gdula

“Without reservation, Kara sets the bar very high as a world class marketing leader. She possess a seemingly clairvoyant insight into channel strategy management, company branding, strategic messaging, effective social media campaign development, high-impact events planning, and digital marketing. While this has fueled her success, it has also complemented her ability to assemble a very gifted, loyal, and driven team of similarly talented marketing professionals who confidently grow business. While always approachable, Kara’s professionalism is impeccable and she is absolutely great to work with.”

Domenick Wissel

“Kara is a dedicated leader who gives her all to support her team. A skilled tactician and strategist, Kara ensures the completion of day-to-day projects while she effectively maps out long-term goals and objectives to develop a progressive marketing department. Her dedication to getting things done correctly is an invaluable quality, as so many will settle for simply getting things done. With Kara at the helm, the marketing department becomes more than a promotional vehicle for the organization. It becomes a hub for thought leadership and a respected advocate for both the company and its customers. Branding, reporting, and email marketing: Kara can do it all, and her passion shines through in everything she does.”

“I have had the privilege of working under Kara over the course of ten years through several company rebrands, acquisitions, and an IPO. Kara is true digital marketing expert and an equally dynamic mentor/leader. She has an acute attention to detail while being able to keep the big picture in mind, and always seeks to find a better, faster, and more efficient process to completion. She instills a culture of trust and collaboration among her team and inspires those around her to rise to their highest potential. I consider her to be a valued colleague and an even better friend.”
