She developed this initiative following her experience volunteering with the Red Cross at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and with Give an Hour where she assisted in the rollout of the Community Blueprint program. Prior to this, Kari worked as a management consultant for Andersen Consulting and for Accenture, assisting government, private industry and non-profit clients on multi-million dollar projects to design, develop and implement large organization change.
