Kara is a Senior Advisor for Agribusiness Banking. She calls Omaha home, but travels across the Midwest, serving customers in Iowa, Colorado, Kansas, and South Dakota. Kara works with businesses across the agricultural industry, including cattle feeding, farming, swine, and grain, using her expertise and skills to create innovative banking solutions tailored to the operational needs of her clients.
Kara’s appreciation for agriculture stems from her youth, growing up in Ord, Nebraska. She began her career with First National Bank as a credit analyst before moving to the relationship side to work more closely with clients. Kara has a Bachelor of Science in Economics from Hastings College and is actively involved with Young Professionals in Agriculture.
Kara loves to travel and learn from other cultures. Her adventures have taken her to South Africa, Peru, Morocco, Spain, and Canada. When not planning her next journey, she spends as much time outside as possible - running, hiking, camping and enjoying live music.
I find joy in developing relationships with our customers that allow me to develop an in-depth understanding of their business and ultimately find innovative banking solutions for their operation’s needs. I aim to bring value to every customer relationship.
