Manager of Community & Evangelism for Puppet
Kara Sowles is the Manager Community and Evangelism at Puppet, where she’s spent the past 6 years leading strategic planning and implementation of the company’s global community programs. She’s worked on contributor events, online user-to-user communication spaces, an evangelism program aimed at giving employees opportunities to talk about their work, scaling networks of user groups, and content selection for user conferences. She also provides guidance to departments on how their programs interact with and affect the community – and how to make that effect a productive one. After working at Puppet during the day, she enjoys going home and making stop-motion animation using real puppets. The irony is not lost on her.
