Our Founder


Cara (Fedewa) Debbaudt is the CEO and Founder of BloomBright, a recruiting consulting firm comprised of leaders committed to elevating the standards in recruiting. A Michigan native, Cara attended Michigan State University, the Indiana University Mauer School of Law, and the University of California Hastings College of Law in San Francisco. Driven by a need to help people, Cara quickly found the world of law to be lacking the fulfillment she was seeking to make a directly impactful and positive difference in people’s lives. She shifted into recruiting, utilizing her methodical law training combined with her ‘gut-intuition’ to become a top recruiter in the Bay Area: investigating and getting to know both candidates and companies thoroughly and empathetically. Cara felt the diversity crunch in Silicon Valley firsthand, and it drove her to found her own talent firm. Cara has taken a lifetime of learning and put it into creating her dream company: one where results are combined with compassion, and where all people are given a voice. Her current team consists of strong female leaders, and a diverse team spanning coast to coast.

Female Driven


When people work with BloomBright, they notice right away that our leadership ranks our largely female, and our team of recruiters remarkably diverse. While this is the organic result of having a female founder, at BloomBright we are keenly aware of building a company for all people to contribute, to lead, and to find opportunity. When we say we are female driven, we are unconsciously nodding to the legacy of automative pioneer Bertha Benz. Wife and business partner of Karl Benz, on August 5, 1888 she became the first person to drive an automobile a long distance. In doing so, she got the Benz Patent-Motorwagen worldwide attention and its first sales. Today, we know the company as Mercedes-Benz. But, it would never have become anything without the vision, originality, and tenacity of one Bertha Benz. We are inspired to be female driven, and to discover what roads lay ahead of us.

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”


Sandra Day O’Connor, Former Supreme Court Justice

“For both men and women, the first step in getting power is to become visible to others — and then to put on an impressive show. The acquisition of power requires that one aspire to power, that one believe power is possible. As women then achieve power and exercise it well, the barriers fall. That’s why I’m optimistic. As society sees what women can do, as women see what women can do, there will be even more women out there doing things — and we’ll all be better off for it. Certainly today women should be optimistically encouraged to exercise their power and their leadership skills wherever it might take them.” —The Majesty of the Law: Reflections of a Supreme Court Justice, April 2004


Toni Morrison, Novelist

“I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’” —Oprah, November 2003

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”


Malala Yousafzai, Activist

“Some people only ask others to do something. I believe that why should I wait for someone else? Why don’t I take a step and move forward. When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.” —The BostonGlobe, September 2013
