Kara’s professional portfolio expands over more than a decade in the financial industry as a leader and producer, nearly ten years in real estate lending as a mortgage loan officer and six years in financial services management with a regional bank. After her own personal experiences with the challenges and frustrations with the lack of clear communication in the healthcare setting, she set out to create a solution. She founded Dub Diversified, LLC, where she created the concept and design for OhanaLink Baby—a smartphone app to help expectant mothers and their support person to bridge communication gaps between patients and their families. She solely built the business from idea, to prototype, to a native mobile app ready to enter the market. Kara left her full-time corporate role to become a relentless entrepreneur pursuing her vision—which is to take a product from concept to market. Kara completed a master’s degree in Leadership and Professional Development from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies. Kara resides in Hermitage, Pennsylvania with her husband and two children.
