Before that, she served in several resource development capacities at the American Red Cross (a founding partner of the Measles & Rubella Initiative, along with the UN Foundation) over a ten year period, specializing in securing funds for international humanitarian work of the organization and global Red Cross network.
A native New Yorker and current resident of Washington, DC, Cara received her law degree from Vermont Law School and bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Binghamton. In her spare time, Cara enjoys hiking with her dog, photography, and soaking up cultural activities with her friends.
