About Kara
I am a mother, New Yorker, philanthropist, and explorer. I live in my hometown with my husband, another native Manhattanite, and our children, although I have a pretty serious case of wanderlust.

Words you live by/quotes you love

"I view things as they are, without regard to place or person; my country is the world, and my religion is to do good.” - Thomas Paine, Rights of Man

Best advice you've ever been given

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone." -Audrey Hepburn

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

I love ethical fashion, clean beauty, travel, dancing, tequila, reading, Central Park, and eating raw honey with a spoon. I like going to museums, watching ballet and opera, and participating in squash, tennis, skiing, and sailing. But my greatest passions, are raising good citizens and making the world a better place. I serve on a number of boards and committees for organizations such as the Babies Heart Fund at Columbia/NY-Presbyterian, the Wassaic Project, Nest, the Central Park Conservancy, the Spence School, Malaika, and the Wildlife Conservation Society.

What do you want to achieve in 2018, personally and professionally?

I would like to grow Accompany - get investment, hire more team members, and increase our exposure and sales, to prove to people that shopping ethically is chic, easy, affordable, and profitable.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Strategic investment.

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

Stop doing all those unhealthy and dangerous things and don't take everything so personally. Just chill out and do the right thing, and you'll be fine.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

To be inspired by other mamas.
