Kara Magoolaghan, LEED Green Associate, TRUE Advisor

Events and Outreach Coordinator, LEED Green Associate, TRUE Advisor

As the events and outreach coordinator, Kara manages event logistics in order to deliver seamless experiences for all GBA guests.  With 125+ events across all program areas annually, Kara provides support in making each and every event unique and exciting down to the last detail.  In her time at GBA, Kara has helped GBA’s events go zero waste!


Kara moved to Pittsburgh in 2017 to begin her professional career as a mechanical engineer.  Her passion for sustainability and technical abilities drove her to GBA, where she is excited to grow her knowledge in green building.  When she’s not supporting GBA’s many events, you can find Kara teaching yoga in the South Hills, adventuring with her dog, or on the hunt for Pittsburgh’s best veggie burger.


Kara holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Binghamton University.
