Kera Garner, BSN, RN-BC
Kera is a board-certified nurse, and was a welcome addition to the Fertility Institute, joining our team in 2021 and assuming the role of Clinical Manager. She earned her Bachelor of Nursing degree from St. Peter’s University and has over 2 decades of experience in nursing, most of which in the hospital setting.
A seasoned healthcare professional, Kera possesses leadership skills and exhibits a strong work ethic. She regularly identifies opportunities for process improvement, and takes the initiative to affect change, fostering a constant quality improvement atmosphere in the clinical department.
Kera was on the front lines working as an ER nurse during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, an experience that she said will have a lasting impact on her. She chose to move back into Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, a field she’s practiced in previously and is passionate about, where she draws on her own experience with fertility treatments to uniquely empathize with every patient she encounters.
Kera is married with three children and loves engaging in activities that take her outdoors. She is Reiki-certified and believes that incorporating a natural/holistic approach to health/wellness, coupled with Western medicine, is the key to longevity and overall health.
