Kara Eliason

Kara handles a bevy of tasks for the magazine including writing, editing, blogging about fancy parties, and managing an army of editorial interns. Before joining the Mpls.St.Paul Magazine staff in 2011, she worked for magazines such as Delta Sky, Viking, and Independent Banker. (Let’s just say she knows more about hub cities, rosemaling, and subprime mortgages than she’d like to admit.) Kara earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of St. Thomas, where she was also captain of the national champion dance team. She doesn’t dance anymore—unless you count weddings—but she enjoys coaching the dance team at Hamline University. Her other interests include yoga, nail polish, golf, documentary films, and eating brunch.
