Kara was born and raised in Orange County. Throughout her youth, she was very involved in sports. Soccer was her passion, and thought she would make a career out of it. Soccer really taught her a foundation for teamwork, integrity, and work ethic.
After attending Mater Dei, Kara attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where she received a Bachelors Degree in Biology, emphasis in Anatomy and Physiology with a minor in Psychology. After graduating, Kara moved back to Southern California to get a fresh opportunity where she could grow her leadership skills and use her sports background to advance and continue to challenge herself daily.
In Orange County, Kara took an entry-level outside sales position at a nationally recognized firm to learn the industry of marketing and sales from the ground up. The growth and advancement through a Leadership Development Program is what attracted her to this type of business, and away from the medical field.
Initially, getting in for experience she soon realized that the social, fast-paced, performance based, and leadership culture was going to be a huge fit for her sports-like background and personality. She loved that the company rewards employees on their personal performance and constantly pushes individuals to their fullest potential by expanding personal and professional growth.
Kara had experience working in management with another sales firm before opening West Coast Concepts in June 2015 in Culver City, CA. Within her first year she has grown the leadership team of six to 24 employees and increased revenue by 200%. The company plans to help open new locations across the nation in 2017. We also have plans to expand into the UK market, specifically London, and use the Leadership Development Program to enrich the lives of individuals in countries in the Western European areas. Her passion lies in entrepreneurship and helping people in for-profit and non-profit sectors.
A Southern California native, Lindsay was born and raised in Palm Springs, Calif. In her youth, she enjoyed dancing, and playing the violin and the piano. She even travelled to China to compete in an international Olympic festival. After high school, Lindsay decided to escape the desert heat, so she moved north to attend the University of California, Davis. While in Davis, Lindsay enjoyed studying both English Literature as well as diversifying her interests and studying Critical Theory and Drama. She took an interest in Biodiversity and, when studying abroad, Lindsay was able to study not only Irish Literature but also Irish Nature and Culture. This, of course, instilled a love of travel within her and now Lindsay is constantly planning her next big adventure.
After graduating with a degree in English Literature, she returned back to Southern California to begin her career. Looking tirelessly for the perfect fit, West Coast Concepts immediately caught her attention. She was excited about the potential for growth and personal development as well as the focus on mentorship and integrity. Above all, Lindsay values the motivation and passion that she is surrounded by daily.
When not working, Lindsay enjoys reading, baking, and spending time with her family and friends.
