Kara Hobbs was born and raised in Baton Rouge and graduated from LSU with her bachelor’s degree in psychology. During her undergraduate years, she had the opportunity to study abroad where she deepened her appreciation for other languages and cultures. Today, she enjoys celebrating and learning more about her own Louisiana African/American/Creole heritage. Her work experience includes time spent in schools, a clinic, and an Applied Behavior Analysis center where she learned behavior modification techniques. Her most recent job was at Metanoia Manor, a residential facility for adolescent survivors of sex trafficking. While there, she learned more about the juvenile justice system and further developed her passion for reaching youth in difficult situations. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, kickboxing, krav maga, learning languages, and spending time with her family and friends. She wholeheartedly embraces LCCR’s philosophy and mission and is excited to be joining the team as a youth advocate.
