Cara joined TimeLine in 2018. In addition to her role as a House Manager, Cara also serves as the Assistant Director of Development for Court Theatre at the University of Chicago. She enjoys reading murder mystery novels, Chekhovian drama, and improvising harmonies to pop songs. A south Florida transplant, Cara moved to the Chicago area in March 2011 and has since served in several front of house roles at theatres including the James Lumber Center for Performing Arts, Writers Theatre, The Den Theatre, and the Northwestern University Theater & Interpretation Center.
Before moving to Chicago, Cara spent two summers in front of house positions at the Illinois Shakespeare Festival. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre and Master of Arts degree in Arts Administration, both from Florida State University. She is very serious about two things: her karaoke performances and quality orange juice (with pulp).
