During the pandemic, nurse Kara Davis has been on the frontlines, working with patients in the ICU at Annie Penn Hospital in Reidsville and COVID-19 patients at Cone Health’s Green Valley Campus.
“I initially had some anxiety about working with COVID-19 patients because of how much was unknown. I worried that if I made one mistake or didn’t clean something correctly, I could be exposed to the virus, but we were well trained regarding how to apply extensive PPE, my first time using that much personal protection” said Davis.
“At the Green Valley Campus encouraging signs and positive messages are posted on the walls around the entrances and in the elevators. This really helps to brighten the staff’s spirits,” she added.
Kara and her husband, Dr. Jason Davis, moved to Greensboro in 2017, and are the proud parents of three boys, Kaden, Ethan, and Hudson. The children attend B’nai Shalom Day School, and Kara and Jason are active in the Federation. Kara is a member of GFLI cohort 2.
“We love living in Greensboro and being a part of Greensboro’s vibrant Jewish community. So much is family-friendly, and the Jewish community has done a fantastic job with engaging its members, particularly during this time. The Federation programs help us to stay connected and being a part of GFLI has further helped strengthen our connections,” notes Kara.
In addition to her work, this supermom has been busy this spring and summer homeschooling, taking care of her children, and training for triathlons.
Kara, we thank you for all that you do for our community!
