Excellence in Community Involvement
Kara’s coworkers applaud her efforts in being a strong supporter of suicide awareness, and note that she has involved her unit awareness and fundraising to support research and prevention of suicide. Kara is an active member of Team Forever Young, a suicide prevention group. Through this group, Kara participates in multiple local and national activities to help raise awareness and secure funding for prevention of suicide.
Kara’s favorite nursing highlight is when her unit, Reilly 4, was chosen as Outstanding Team during the hospital’s Nurses Week celebrations. She loves working with her co-workers!
Outside of her community involvement and commitment on this important issue, Kara enjoys fishing, spending time with her partner and going to Red Sox games.
