Cara started lifting weights in 2013 and competing in strongwoman in 2015. Battles with depression and anxiety set her on a path of self-exploration through physical challenge and behavioral development. She worked as a personal trainer from 2014 to 2020, and helping people get stronger stoked her passion to explore what drives and ensures people’s success and happiness. Competing in strongwoman became a catalytic vessel for professional and personal development, and set Cara down a path of intense curiosity about what the upper limits of human potential are. With over 25 strength competitions behind her, Cara is now a filmmaker and writer whose work focuses on personal expansion through challenge, the physical arts as artistic expression and self-development, and the psychotechnologies of magical-spiritual practices.
