Kara Dykert is the driving force behind By Kara Elise, a multifaceted lifestyle brand that specializes in hosting, food styling, recipe creation, and brand collaborations.
Through cultivating relationships in LA, Kara has garnered a notable network of guests and brands.

Her movement continues to grow internationally while her events appeal to socially savvy and conscious foodies who find pleasure in both travel and curated experiences. Kara believes that community can be crafted anywhere one is planted.
Kara also collaborates with brands turning consumers into thriving relationships and ultimately seeks to create a space for people to connect by creating and cultivating a culture of invitation. She believes in beauty through food and enriching the soul through intentional conversation. Join her at the table.
