Kara Olson-Jr. League – Community Volunteer
As a Community Volunteer, it is my desire to work side by side nonprofits in Collin County and give back to the community where I can. I have a true passion for the development and success of nonprofit work. I believe that awareness and knowledge are only half of the solution to the needs in our community. It is my goal to help educate those I work with and those I meet in the community about the myriad of issues facing Collin County. Each nonprofit I have the opportunity to serve with, teaches me about a new area of our community that is in need of being served, while reiterating the need for continued services in some of our foundational issues such as; domestic violence, homelessness and economic insecurity.
I have over 20 years of experience in volunteer work. With 8 years of directly serving with the Junior League of Collin County. Other service in the community has partnered me with Volunteer McKinney, Journey of Hope and the Sci-Tech Discovery Center. I hold a Bachelor of Science Criminal Justice degree from The University of North Texas. I live in McKinney with my husband of 19 years, Andy, and our daughter: AveriGrace (10).
