“Cara’s advocacy training was very helpful for our staff, interns and participants. She broke down the legislative process in a way that everyone could understand it.

We learned how to be confident in talking with our representatives and telling our personal stories about why the proposed legislation was important to the community.”

Cindi Yang, MSW, Director of Programs, Neighborhood House


“Cara brought our Museum in the Streets project to life. She worked really well with the community to partner local history with economic development strategy in researching and installing the permanent exhibit. As a result, every day people read our history plaques and value Lake Street’s special history.”

Allison Sharkey, Executive Director, Lake Street Council


“Cara’s work with us and our community partners to develop a consensus plan for us to move our project forward was excellent. She was collaborative, professional, and helped us reach new voices.”

Chris Wilson, Director of Real Estate Development, Project for Pride in Living, Inc.


“On the campaign, I worked closely with Cara on policy development when she was deputy campaign manager. She showed deep knowledge of local policy issues, and was great at bringing policy experts together to build well informed consensus. Her strategic, approach to policy development served us well.”

Alberto Monserrate, CEO and Co-Founder, NewPublica, former MPS Board Director
