Kara is a relationship educator from Allen, TX, and the owner of Verge Relationships, LLC. She earned her PhD in Family Studies from TWU and her master’s degree in dispute resolution from SMU.
After working for a time as a family mediator, helping couples divide up their assets and work out child custody arrangements, she knew she wanted to reach couples much earlier in the process, before they hit rough patches. After participating in premarital classes with her husband, she left her job in higher education to step into the nonprofit realm, focused on marriage and family strengthening. After that experience, Kara decided to pursue her PhD and simultaneously open her own business serving couples in 2014.
Since then, Verge Relationships has experienced tremendous year-over-year growth, and Kara’s been fortunate to serve hundreds of couples and individuals through private sessions, workshops, and speaking engagements. She’s certified to facilitate a variety of relationship programs, and she has also taught courses at local universities. Kara is a 3-time recipient of The Knot’s “Best of Weddings” award for her premarital classes.
Kara’s research and practical work with couples center on how couples communicate and engage in conflict, especially as they make big decisions and prepare for major transitions like marriage and first-time parenthood together.
Kara is married with a 3-year-old daughter and baby #2 on the way this summer.
