          Kara McCurlie

          Partner Office Manager

          Kara was born and raised at MJM. She started working part-time at the age of 4, which makes her the oldest employee even though she’s youngest. After a hard morning in kindergarten, she’d get locked inside the vocal booth where she was forced to read commercials for shopping malls. Somehow, this led to an obsession (and a degree) in film, which then led back to MJM. Bottom line: she’s really good at helping people, and she’ll make sure your experience here is great.
