Kara (Scheerhorn) Schirmer
I am an environmentalist, outdoor enthusiast, and food lover from the Midwest. I was born in Rochester, New York and raised in Holland, Michigan. I studied in Michigan, Denmark, and Ohio and have found my home in Cincinnati as a professional grant writer at my local county park district.
I believe that writing is a catalyst for change. In my life there are many elements that have shaped and influenced me, and consequentially my writing. One of those elements would be my landscape and within that, Lake Michigan. I care for the environment because it’s part of who I am.
The main theme of my blog posts are centered around environmental issues, healthy living, and travel as it relates to my personal experience.
