Kara Childs was born and raised in the Redwoods of Northern California. Coming from a town of 24 people and having more emus and cows around than neighbors, she decided she needed a bigger city and moved to the Phoenix area almost 20 years ago. Kara graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Argosy University and started her career in the educational sector. She is a huge advocate of education and while working in this sector, she went on to obtain three master’s degrees. Kara holds a Master of Business administration (MBA), Master of Management (MM), and a Master of Adult Education and Training (MAED).
Kara has worked in the financial services industry for close to a decade. Prior to making the leap into the mortgage world, she worked with individuals and families with consumer debt to assist them in becoming debt free. She transitioned to the mortgage industry and realized that this is where her true passion lies. Kara prides herself in taking the time to understand her clients’ short and long-term goals in order to find a solution that is uniquely catered to them. She ensures that her clients receive superior service as they pursue one of the most personal investments of their lifetime.
Kara resides in Gilbert, AZ with her two teenage boys and her dog. She absolutely loves Arizona and when she is not wrapped up in her kids’ activities, she can often be found hiking up a mountain. When it gets too hot to hike, she likes to spend her time with her nose stuck in a book.
