  • Biography

    Kara graduated from the Schreyer Honors College at The Pennsylvania State University with a B.S. in Animal Bioscience and and M.S. in Immunology and Infectious Disease. Her masters thesis focused on vaccine immunology, specifically, the effects of vitamin A on B cell responses to vaccines. At the point of her graduation, she had completed two summer internships at Merck and Co., one of which had involved extensive study of a vaccine candidate against a bacterial pathogen. With a new interest in bacterial pathogens and infectious disease, Kara began a Ph.D degree in microbiology at Colorado State University. Under the careful tutelage of Dr. Steven Dow, Kara explored host-pathogen interactions, immunotherapy, and antimicrobial therapy against a bacterial pathogen, Burkholderia pseudomallei. Encouraged by her mentors, she also pursued her love of teaching through a graduate teaching certificate. On a more personal note, Kara developed a strong passion for hiking the Colorado Rockies. After receiving her doctorate, she sought out college teaching experience through a one-year adjunct position at a local community college. Later that year she landed her dream job as an assistant professor at a small liberal arts college on the east coast, Moravian College. Although, she has only taught at Moravian College for one academic year, she is passionate about becoming a more effective teacher for her students.
