A Kerrville native, Kari seems to have been born to work. When she was just 13, she picked up the telephone book and started calling businesses to see if they would hire her. After graduating from Tivy High School, she attended Texas State University for several semesters before deciding that work really was her calling, rather than sitting in a classroom.

Kari worked at a Ford dealership in Austin and at Kerrville RV before getting her real estate license in 2009. Kari tends to focus on buyer representation and works with investors as well as investing in real estate herself. She is currently working on her real estate broker license.

Kari is a charter member of the Texas Rangers Foundation and has served on both the Texas Ranger Gala Board and Hill Country Charity Ball Board. She has also volunteered for Blue Santa supporting the Kerrville Police Department and mentored students at Tally Elementary.

When not busy working, Kari enjoys spending time with her four wonderful children and her extended family. She loves spending time on Bible study and on Lake LBJ, boating and fishing.
