Cara has held a number of leadership positions in nonprofits and the federal government, focusing on health policy and reform. In 2011, she shifted gears to pursue a longstanding dream to establish a local children’s museum. Cara believes strongly in the need to cultivate children’s creativity, curiosity and compassion – both to provide well-rounded experiences in their formative years and to nourish the next generation of leaders.
