Cara joined Revitalist in May of 2021 as Chattanooga’s Lead CRNA. Cara is extremely passionate about having this opportunity to help treat patients with mood/pain disorders after witnessing the amazing transformation ketamine had on one of her loved ones several years ago. She believes her anesthesia background and passion for preventative health and wellness are perfectly aligned with Revitalist’s unique array of collaborative treatment and care.
Cara comes to Revitalist with 26+ years of healthcare experience. She grew up in Massachusetts and obtained her BSN with Honors from the University of Virginia. She practiced as a Critical Care RN in various settings throughout the United States while her husband served in the Marine Corps. Her passion was Trauma ICU and she earned her CCRN and TCRN Certification.
In 2007 she moved to Memphis, TN and attended the University of Tennessee Health Science Center where she earned her MSN in Anesthesia. She then earned her Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. Cara has 10+ years of practicing anesthesia in various settings from outpatient ambulatory surgery centers to a Level 1 Trauma hospital working high risk OB.
In 2017 Cara and her family moved to Chattanooga so her boys could attend McCallie (Go BIG BLUE!!!) They absolutely love this city and everything it has to offer! In her free time, Cara enjoys taking advantage of all the fun outdoor activities that Chattanooga has to offer; trail running, hiking, spending time on the lake with her family, or hitting one of the many dog friendly restaurant patios with her two Goldendoodles.
