“I would highly recommend working with Kara Goughnour. She did a terrific job when she worked with me at Animal Media Group. I gave her a progressively more difficult list of tasks to help me with and she and her work always exceeded my expectations. So much so that I hired her to work on a book project that I was working on outside of Animal Media Group. Once again she did the work in a great fashion and got it done ahead of the deadline. I look forward to working with her on a multitude of writing projects coming up this year.” — howard shapiro, director of publishing, animal media group

“Kara helped me organize and review material for my documentary feature, Barefoot: The Mark Baumer Story. I was impressed with the quality of Kara’s work, her dedication and her enthusiasm for the creative process. Kara is self-directed, intelligent and affable; it was a complete joy to work with her.” — Julie sokolow, award-winning director of barefoot: the mark baumer story
