Meet May's Registry Rock Star: Kara
Kara Blog

This month’s Registry Rock Star is Kara Zeinner, CTR! As a cancer information specialist for CHAMPS Oncology, Kara was introduced to the profession through her aunt, who is also a CTR. Her aunt thought the profession would be a good fit for her – and she was right! Kara has since put in 16 years in the cancer registry, enjoying every moment of her work.

For Kara, the most fulfilling part of her role is knowing that her work goes towards finding a cure for cancer. Working with data and finding patterns is something she enjoys greatly, so the role remains constantly and consistently engaging for her.

“I love learning about medicine and science,” Kara said. “There’s always something new to learn, especially with the rare or unusual presentation of cases.”

In her free time, Kara is a huge fan of arts and crafts, presently working on an afghan to coordinate with her decorative pillows at home. She resides in central Indiana with her husband, daughter and son. Their family also includes two cats, Smokey and Purssephone, and a hedgehog – lovingly nicknamed “Ouch Mouse” – named Marshmallow.

As for items on her bucket list, she hopes to travel one day to Egypt and Japan.

Registry Rock Star features a different CHAMPS Oncology employee every month. To learn more, follow #RegistryRockStar on social media. What’s your favorite part about working in the cancer registry?
