Everyday is different for Kara, and she likes it that way! She’s been the event manager at The Flea for a year and a half now. She enjoys the hustle and bustle that comes along with managing events. She’s mastered everything from making reservations, taking orders, and setting up the different event spaces.
The Flea has 3 different event spaces called the Buffalo Room, “Backstage” Banquet and Party Room. These rooms include everything from flat screens, a stage, and private entrances. Kara is always there to make sure everything is perfect for each guest.
The best thing about her job? “It can be pretty chaotic but I love that there’s always something going on and I get to meet a lot of interesting people,” says Kara.
She manages all kinds of events from corporate events and baby showers to karaoke nights and bachelorette parties. “One of my favorite events I worked at was Joe’s son, Jack’s bar mitzvah,” says Kara. “The decorations were beautiful and you could tell all the kids were having a lot of fun.”
When she’s not managing events, she’s spending time with her friends and family, including her 18-year-old son, Jake, who goes to Rockhurst High School, and is off to the University of Missouri next year. She also enjoys traveling, going to sporting events, and trying new things.
