Kara Moore, director of financial aid, was born and raised in Southern California, just down the 10 freeway in Beaumont. She graduated from the University of La Verne, majoring in Behavioral Science and Creative Art. Beyond working as Director of Financial Aid at Woodbury University and Holy Names University, Kara also operated a successful consulting business where she served as Interim Director for various universities and provided assistance in the areas of office management and operations review for financial aid offices. Most recently, she served as Business Analyst and Project Manager for the University of Tampa in their integration of Jenzabar CX to Workday.
Kara is happy to return to her financial aid “roots” and the Claremont area. In her spare time, she listens to straight-ahead jazz and dabbles in the arts. You’ll likely see her walking her three dogs on campus and in the Village.
