As Cofounder of Urban Interns, Cari focuses primarily on business strategy, marketing and business development. She also manages the company's public relations. In short, Cari spends her time trying to convince anyone and everyone that Urban Interns is a need-to-know resource for growing companies and job seekers.
Cari first perfected this Art of Advocacy during the seven years she practiced law. She began her legal career at the international law firms of Cadwalader Wickersham and Taft, and later Bryan Cave, where she focused primarily on commercial, bankruptcy and securities litigation. After leaving Bryan Cave and before starting Urban Interns, Cari was the Director of Business Development for Lexolution, a national legal staffing firm. Her career transition from practicing law to becoming an entrepreneur has been chronicled by the Wall Street Journal and Above the Law.
Throughout her career, Cari has also been deeply committed to community philanthropy. From 2006-2009, she served as the Chair of the New York Board of Directors of Step Up Women's Network, a national nonprofit dedicated to strengthening community resources for women and girls. During her time as Chair, Step Up's membership increased by 400 percent and the fundraising doubled. Cari remains an active Board member of Step Up.
