In the professional arena, Klara has made a significant impact. She joined the Hobart Chargers in 2014, helping them secure the SEABL South Conference title. The Perth Lynx signed her for the 2015–16 WNBL season, where she played her role in the team’s journey to the WNBL Grand Final.

Klara made a notable appearance with the Joondalup Wolves, receiving accolades like SBL Player of the Week and All-Star Game MVP honours. She helped the Wolves clinch the minor premiership and reach the SBL Grand Final. In 2019, she signed with the Kilsyth Cobras and played a pivotal role in their NBL1 grand final victory.
