Previously director of marketing for Tampa International Airport, she managed historic growth and route expansion. Kari has been an audience development professional for the Straz Center, and she is still a performer and director with Stageworks Theatre and Jobsite Theater. A Second City Hollywood founder, Kari uses her love of improv comedy to build workshops and MBA programs for students and business leaders at USF and Wayne State University. She is an (almost) Florida native, and proud to be a member of the Athena Society, board member for Stageworks Theatre, and a long-time resident and enthusiast of Seminole Heights. She lives in a funky bungalow with her groovy husband, her righteous son, and many animals.
