Kara Skarda

Kara’s career life has included a few unusual twists and turns, from working for the federal government, to teaching elementary special education, and then eventually to moving to the other side of the world to work with Shan refugees on the Thai-Burma border. However, serving others in areas of deep need has consistently been her focus. When life settled her in Thailand, she began to use her writing skills to serve others, writing at various points on issues facing refugees, child development, and learning disorders. However, it was Lynae that found her and discovered her nerdy enjoyment of reading medical journals. Before long, as Kara began interacting within the breast cancer community, a passion spread to stand alongside the women who must face this disease and to give every woman the opportunity to make an informed decision regarding breast reconstruction. That is her aim today in her work with I’m Taking Charge
