Cara works in risk and strategy for an international oil company in Houston, Texas. Prior to graduating in 2008 with a degree in International Studies, Cara studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. There, she sealed her interest in energy after experiencing repeated rolling power outages in the capital of the resource rich country. During her senior year, Cara worked with two professors on power and energy related research, developing critical quantitative skills and industry knowledge that helped her land her first job as a research analyst covering the US oil and gas industry at consultancy Wood Mackenzie. After three years, "I was able to learn a tremendous amount about the industry in a research role but wanted to learn more about the day to day operations of a natural resource firm so I made the move from research to industry."
