Cara came to Flagstaff in 2010 to get her Master’s degree in Sustainable Communities from Northern Arizona University. She intended to get her degree and move back to the south, but life had other plans. She did graduate, expanded her family, and never left. Flagstaff has a way of claiming people, despite plans they may have had. Nearing a decade of high desert living, Cara very much enjoys the natural beauty of Northern Arizona.
