Who is Kara Hanger?

Kara Hanger, M.A.
Career Coach
Certified Calling Coach

I love helping students and professionals in transition! With years of experience editing resumes, conducting mock interviews and personality assessments, I know how to get you to your goal. I’m an avid reader and constant learner so I work to stay on trend with what is happening in the job market.

I have a passion for coaching people who want to live an integrated, focused, and on-purpose life. For several years while working with a variety of leaders on Capitol Hill, I observed blossoming careers coinciding with struggling personal lives. Too often, people woke up to the hard reality that somewhere along the way they lost sight of their priorities and gave up on their passions.

I thrive in helping avoid this pitfall. I coach people to excel in their careers while also providing perspective in the doldrums, struggles, and suffering. I believe that understanding one’s calling is crucial to a deeply fulfilling life.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership with an emphasis in leadership coaching. My work experience includes career counseling the non-profit arena, higher education, and church equipping. I facilitate training workshops, gifts seminars, calling workshops and one on one coaching.

I currently live in Virginia Beach with my amazing husband Hunter and daughter, Ilah. We enjoy surfing, tennis, and any beach related activity.
