Kari has a Business Management degree from the University of Utah (“Go Utes”) and over 15 years of experience in advertising, marketing, and business management. She has held positions of increasing responsibility working for media companies and in marketing within the financial sector. Additionally, she is the co-owner of a company that owns and operates restaurants.
Kari is a published author and was the Editor and Publisher for a regional travel magazine. After years of selling, creating, editing, and designing print advertising, writing proposals (i.e. selling the best company for each contract) is a natural fit for Kari. The “pitch” flows in Kari’s blood and the prospect of creating opportunities for businesses to meet needs or solve problems for government or municipalities honestly excites her more than it should.
Kari is going through a reincarnation after recently hitting a “milestone” birthday. She recently moved into her personally remodeled 100-year-old home and has officially downsized and streamlined her life. She has a new lease on life and a great job pushing her to learn new skills, children that are grown and finding their way in the world and a renewed craving for adventure. Kari enjoys hiking on her family’s mountain ranch in central Utah and hours spent with friends enjoying the peace and beauty of Lake Powell. Utah provides so many settings for what Kari enjoys the most…being outside under blue skies with warm sunshine filling her days.
Often teased for her “Matchy-Matchy, Over-Ambitious” Vacation Packing and a need to have just the right accessories for every occasion, Kari recently learned to live out of a backpack for six weeks traveling by train and bus in Europe. The daily experience of new amazing food, fine wine, glorious views and some of the most incredible hikes in the world compensated for clothes worn over and over again and only two pairs of shoes. While Spain and Italy were breathtaking (especially the Amalfi Coast,) the highlight of her trip was visiting her Grandfather’s birth village in Croatia. The reality that our blessings are a direct result of decisions made by our ancestors was painfully apparent in the war-torn villages of what was Yugoslavia.
