She was published in her high school literary magazine, was a writer for both her high school yearbook and newspaper. In college Kari furthered her writing endeavors by penning several short stories as, “Jasper, 1955”, “In the Company of Wolves”, among others.

Most recently Kari has participated in National Novel Writing Month with vast ideas that never came to fruition, however the drafts are still alive for future effort.
