Welcome to New PATH Intl. Staff Member

Kara-BartenMeet Kara Barten, the newest Member Services Representative at PATH Intl. She will be handling all of the individual/instructor memberships, merchandise and administrative support.

Kara moved from Iowa to Colorado last year after graduating from the University of Iowa ("GO HAWKEYES!"), and she has been loving all that Denver has to offer. In her spare time (we will make sure she doesn't have much!), she enjoys keeping busy outside (hiking, camping, skiing), finding live music around town, and catching up with family back home. "I am very excited to be working with the great staff at PATH Intl.," she says, "and I will hopefully get a chance to meet some of you!"
