Leaning into her Type 1 nature and a love for watching clients succeed, Kara DiCarlo joined the Green Apple team as Client Relations Specialist. She thrives on one-on-one time with clients and enjoys helping them find innovative ways to meet their business goals. Working closely with Samantha Pyle, Adam York, and Olivia Cooper, Kara will serve as a project manager for her clients, facilitating their needs and fostering their growth.
A native of Brinkley, Arkansas, a small town outside of Memphis, Kara studied journalism and graphic design at Ouachita Baptist University. She spent many years as a photographer, but when she moved to Nashville, her career shifted to marketing, when she joined Deane Smith and Partners for several years as an account executive. Here, Kara handled client relations, as well as email marketing campaigns, social media, media relations, and PR. Kara later moved to freelance photography and social media management for the agency in 2016.
More recently, Kara worked in marketing with VendEngine, Inc., developing content and strategies for email marketing campaigns, client relations, social media, and blogging content. She spent most of her time there creating content and sales tools for client relations and operations.
She found Green Apple through a conversation with Adam York in a local coffee shop about marketing and content creation. After meeting Sam and the team, Kara very quickly saw that she loved the work environment and how Green Apple operates.
“I love taking care of people, and I love that this role allows me to use my experience to serve Green Apple’s clients and make them even more successful,” says Kara. “I realized that, through the years, one of my favorite roles has been project management and client relations. Nothing fits me better than having one-on-one time with clients,” she added.
The environment of the Green Apple team was appealing to her because she had, “never seen people act as such a team, enjoying their clients and working together.” She knew that she would love to be a part of this agency. Kara’s strong interpersonal skills and a love for organization will allow her to walk alongside her clients’ journeys with Green Apple and help them grow even more.
Kara is married to her college sweetheart, Vince. They have two kids Eva and Nico. She loves spending time with her family more than anything. They love to travel and explore new places. Her favorite food is Thai, and she’s obsessed with coffee and finding a good coffee spot. After living in East Nashville for five years, Kara’s family now lives in Columbia, Tennessee, and they absolutely love it.
