Kara opened S.L.A.M. Charlotte in 2020. Prior to coaching, she was licensed as a high school business teacher. Her career path was put on pause when she married her college sweetheart (Go Hokies!) and moved overseas. After falling in love with S.L.A.M. in 2019, she became a certified Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism Coach, which has led to a passion for pre and postnatal fitness. She is a mom to four: 6, 6, 4, and 1, who have spent hundreds of hours with her at S.L.A.M.! They love coming to class to watch mom coach and to see their friends.
After having twins in 2017 then welcoming her third daughter in 2019, she was desperate for a village, an outlet, and the opportunity to get out of the house with three tiny humans in tow. She found S.L.A.M. El Paso, which provided her a community, support, and so much more.
Knowing how impactful S.L.A.M. can be for new moms, Kara is passionate about providing a safe space for pregnant or postpartum moms to exercise and get support. She is dedicated to continuously learning and growing to be the best coach for our growing community.
