By day, Kara Jackman works as an Archivist at Boston University School of Theology Library wrangling old papers and preserving history. By night, she feverishly types away to meet deadlines as a freelance communications professional currently contracting with Children’s Craniofacial Association (CCA Kids) in Dallas, Texas. In the last two years, she has raised over $70,000 for CCA Kids through her words and increased their media reach by 30 percent.
Her work has appeared in the Duxbury Clipper, NotYourAverageSportsChick.com, the non-profit newsletter for the Foundation for Faces of Children, and local, online sports magazines. Her interests are many and varied thanks to her four years at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. For good measure and financial practicality, she pursued a Master’s in Library and Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh.
Kara is a strong woman that has been through a whole bunch. She is constantly evolving and trying like mad to improve myself. She loves to play tennis, work out, run, lift weights, listen to music, travel, watch copious amounts of TV, read, write and hang out with people that make her happy, like her fabulous family and friends.
