Once upon a time, a little girl named Kara dreamed of being a Princess. She would don her most "luxurious" nightgown and pretend to be one of the many enchanting Disney heroines she had watched countless times, on screens both big and small. As Kara grew into a woman her flare for the dramatic endured. She began to audition for roles in the local theater. The songs of Disney inspired her to participate in the performance arts at an early age. Some of her most memorable roles included Rizzo in "Grease", Tuptim in "The King and I" and Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz". But it was in 2002 when Kara discovered her most challenging and rewarding role to date, the role of mother. Kara is mother to four beautiful children, ages twelve, ten, and six year old twin girls. Kara considers her husband and children to be her greatest accomplishments. Always the nurturer, Kara surrounded herself with children, helping with her younger sister and babysitting for neighborhood families. It was an easy decision for Kara to specialize in pediatric and obstetric nursing after graduation from Washburn University with her Bachelors in Science Nursing, and minor in Vocal Performance. While working at Mercy Hospital, Kara was locally famous for charming sick children and patients with little performances and songs, knowing that smiles are the best medicine. Recently, Kara had the chance to share the Disney magic she had been so fond of as a child with her own children. When she and her family stood under the glow of Cinderella's Castle amid showers of glittering fireworks, surrounded by the endearing words and melodies of Disney's music. The Disney legacy, such a strong force for Kara and her loved ones, brought Kara to the realization. "It was there, gazing at the faces of my twin girls in complete awe, that I realized what made the Disney Princesses and Princes so very magical... They create the same powerful feelings of happiness that I felt as a child, for my own children. Some of my fondest moments with my own children have happened while we were curled up on the couch watching a Disney movie, or cruising along in the car singing our favorite Princess tunes. It's magic that ties us together, generation after generation. I am honored to join the cast of Forever After Parties, and bring a glimpse of that magic to you and your special Prince or Princess."

She loved playing Cosette in Les Miserables, Maria in The Sound of Music, and Jo in Little Women. Her family runs sports camps, which she participated in but did not find true meaning in the pursuit of basketball.

She finds great joy in bringing delight to children through theatre, babysitting, and helping in the church nursery. She has two cherished younger sisters who she loves to create plays with, make up songs with, and talk about Disney with for hours.

Yet her sister was born with fiery red hair and reminds Natalya of the joy every child feels for Disney and imagination. In high school, she engaged in debates advocating for the values and importance of Disney in a child’s life. She has always dreamed of being a Disney princess because of her many magical memories of family trips to Disneyland and her admiration for the kindness, courage, and love of the princesses. Some favorite hobbies include reading classics, wakeboarding, playing games with her family, and riding rollercoasters. She aspires to perform professionally so she can touch others with the beauty and meaning of art.
