Early life and education
Lady Kara was born in the city of Blackfoot in the US state of Idaho as the sixth and youngest child of farmers David and Bonnie George. Much of her childhood was spent working on the family farm, raising alfalfa and peas to feed the beef cattle the farm raised. She was known in her town as a talented vocalist and routinely played leading roles in the theater department at Blackfoot High School. After completing her secondary education, she studied at Ricks College (now Brigham Young University–Idaho) and then at Utah State University, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in theater performance.
Move to Seattle and family life
Following her graduation, Kara moved to Seattle, where she worked as an actress and a restaurant hostess. She later found employment as an office manager at a local dental practice. The dentist who employed her was involved in addiction assistance programs for medical professionals, inspiring her to obtain a certification in drug and chemical dependency counseling, a field which she would go on to work in for a decade.
Early in Überstadti history, Kara found micronationalism a bizarre concept, questioning her son's motivation for founding a nation. This skepticism gradually diminished, and she became a great supporter of the project, hosting Adam's coronation and stitching the Kingdom's first cloth flag. She consented to the Royal Residency and associated land becoming part of Überstadt as the Barony of Rosewood in 2013 and was created the Baroness Rosewood on 20 March of that year. Around this time, she was made a judge of the Crown Court for the Duchy of Edmount, a role which she retains today.
