Kara joined the Lifeline team in August of 2018 as a social worker in our Florida office. She completes international and domestic home studies, post-adoption visits, and serves Central Florida as a pregnancy counselor. God began to burden her heart for children in need of families when she first went on a short-term mission trip to an orphanage in Bolivia in 2012. Through this exposure to great physical and spiritual needs, Kara began to grasp the connection between adoption and the Gospel. She feels so blessed to be able to continue making an impact at this orphanage in Bolivia, where her love for helping to place the lonely in families originated. Kara earned a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Southeastern University, and a Master’s degree in Social Work from Roberts Wesleyan College. In her free time, Kara loves spending quality time with friends and family, going on a bike ride, and playing tennis. Kara loves being able to be a part of what God is doing through the ministry of Lifeline. She believes that we all have an innate desire for community, because God created us for relationship with Him, and Lifeline exemplifies the importance of community and relationship as we walk with prospective families and expectant parents through their journey of adoption.
