Kara is PST’s Physical Therapy Assistant. She is from Cranberry Township and a graduate from Butler County Community College. When she entered PTA school she set a goal to work in pediatrics. She is very excited to be part of the PST team.

Outside of work she enjoys spending time outdoors, visiting new places, experiencing new things, reading and baking.

Kara’s path to helping others began as a volunteer firefighter. “I saw and helped people through difficult situations and it was important to me, but it began and ended at the scene.” She felt she could continue to help people by becoming a physical therapist assistant, to help them heal, recover, and grow. Working with children, Kara feels every child and every therapy session is unique and exciting. “I feel my job is to turn therapy into fun, so I get to play all day.”
