About Kara Wilfong
My name is Kara Wilfong, and I am a registered nurse of 8 years. I’m ecstatic to be a part of the team at Pura Vida and to grow my passion in the field of aesthetics. As a hospital nurse, I have spent my career helping others, but have always had a special yearning for helping others find love and confidence within themselves.
I graduated with my bachelor's in nursing from Jacksonville University, where I am currently working toward obtaining my Doctor of Nursing degree to become a nurse practitioner. Before joining Pura Vida, I spent six years in the emergency room caring for a wide variety of people. Prior to that, I spent two years working in intensive care with complex medical patients. My career has afforded me the opportunity to work with many exceptional medical professionals and to acquire a versatile set of skills which are applicable in various settings. As I continue working as a nurse, I am grateful to be moving forward in such a positive and creative environment.
I live on a small cattle ranch in Bostwick, Florida, with my husband, four children, and three dogs. Our farm consists of cattle, sheep, chickens, goats, a horse, and a donkey. My family spends many weekends at youth rodeo, where the kids participate in a variety of activities while learning the traits of perseverance and hard work. My husband is a firefighter locally and is dedicated to serving our community. When I am not spending time on the ranch, I like to spend time in the outdoors relaxing by a fire or body of water with friends and extended family.
