Plus-size author takes on Mount Kilimanjaro to get over body issues.

Live beyond limits.

Live life. And love it. The true joy in life is living it. Without fear, reservation, or compromise. There was a time when I was stuck waiting for happiness to arrive. It took me years to realize the irony of it all: Happiness was always right there. And it was waiting on me.

Hi. I’m Kara.

I am a plus-size author, public speaker and adventurer. I took on Mount Kilimanjaro three times. I wrote Gorge and Weight of Being. It is now my mission to share my journey and inspire others take bold steps and move mountains in their lives.
