Cara Xidis grew up near Seattle, Washington, and has slowly been making her way to drier and drier climates. While she misses the lush green of the northwest, she loves Las Vegas.
After high school, Cara attended Kansas State University (go Cats!), where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature, and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Secondary Education. It was here that she came to love college football.
During her last year at KSU, she spent three months abroad, studying the Japanese language in Tokyo, Japan, followed by a semester student teaching at Topeka West High School, in Topeka, Kansas. She then attended law school at Brigham Young University, where she had the opportunity to volunteer with the Rocky Mountain Innocence Project. She moved to Las Vegas after she graduated, and has made it her home.
