Born and raised in Owen Sound, Kara is proud to call Grey-Bruce home with her three wonderful children and her husband, Wayne. Her passion for law was ignited in 2004 when
she became employed at a local law firm, which allowed her to work alongside Hon. Justice Clayton Conlan, Federal Prosecutor Elizabeth Barefoot, Federal Prosecutor and Hon.
Justice Hugh O’Connell and Justice of the Peace Terry Steenson.
In 2012, studying at a private college in Brampton, Kara completed the Paralegal Diploma program with Honours and was licensed by the Law Society of Ontario in 2013. Without hesitation, Kara opened her own practice as a paralegal and business owner in her hometown of Owen Sound, which she successfully operated for nearly 8 years.
Kara’s practice grew to a point where she knew, in order to give her clients the best of her, she needed to make a shift. That shift led her to The Ross Firm, where Kara looks forward to continuing to provide unmatched representation in Small Claims Court, Landlord and Tenant Board and Provincial Offences. Kara most recently was sworn in as a Municipal Prosecutor and looks forward to serving various municipalities throughout our region.
In addition to advocating for her clients and raising a family, Kara began teaching in the Law Clerk program at the Owen Sound Campus of Georgian College in 2018. As a Paralegal and a previous Landlord herself, Kara loves sharing her knowledge and passion of Landlord and Tenant law with her students.
When Kara isn’t hard at work, you may find her at the ball diamond with her slow-pitch team, camping with her family, out exploring on her kayak or travelling with friends and family.
