Chose O&P Field Because

Cara chose the O&P field because it offers a way to truly impact people’s quality of life both physically and mentally. She particularly likes the fact that she gets to work with her hands in a way that can make someone’s day-to-day life a bit easier.


“No two patients are the same. Each has circumstances, goals, and solutions that are unique, so there is always something I learn from each patient encounter.”

Fun Facts

While Cara enjoys just spending time with her family, she also likes to stay active by working out and exploring the outdoors. Cara is also an animal lover, and in grad school was voted “most likely to stop mid-sentence to go pet a dog.”
