Health & Beauty, a small business focused on bridal makeup and mobile massage therapy services. After a back injury in 2010 which left her unable to work, Cara refocused her lifelong love of 3 dimensional art and began sewing lessons, which developed into a love of textiles (primarily antique & vintage upholstery fabrics) and she opened up her Etsy shop in late 2010. She began teaching the Massage Therapy core program at NMTI in Wilmington, DE in late 2010, and in 2011 began teaching at Harris School of Business also in Wilmington, DE where she rose to the position of lead instructor. In December 2012, she re-branded to Cara B. Design & Wellness, with her offshoot business Cara B. Design Studio representing her artwork. From February 2013 to June 2014 she served as Massage Therapy Manager at Mellow Massage Therapy Center in Philadelphia, PA.

In October 2015, the Pennsylvania State Board of Cosmetology approved her esthetician salon license for 515 Maple Street in Conshohocken, PA. In 2016, after a serious shoulder injury, she took her extensive experience in massage therapy and skin care and began her own muscle and skin care line, Bath & Body by Cara B.
