Leaders

Kara Kazemba

Kara's passion for mental health and systemic wellness has informed each step of her professional journey. Kara started her career focusing on early childhood trauma and attachment after graduating from California State University, Sacramento,
with a Master's degree in Social Work. After working in Child Protective Services, she entered community mental health with an appreciation for how early life experiences and relationships can lead to challenges in adulthood. Kara also saw how systemic supports, or the lack thereof, could impact individuals well past childhood.

For several years, Kara worked as a service coordinator for individuals with severe mental illness, gaining experience in a variety of modalities. This work allowed her to develop deep empathy for individuals living in "extreme states." During this time, Kara obtained her license to practice clinical social work (LCSW).

After moving into management in 2014, Kara worked heavily on accessing grants for programs related to housing and homelessness. Today, Kara sits on the Washington County Homeless Plan
Advisory Committee and is a passionate advocate of fundamental human rights and equality.

Native of Washington, Kara has called the Hillsboro community home since 2012 and lives with her partner, three kids, a rambunctious border collie, an undetermined number of chickens.
