Qualifications and Experience
Kimberley Arcara was born and raised in the Buffalo New York area where she attended Canisius College and received a degree in International Relations. She then worked as a sales representative for a technology based firm for five years before moving to the Boston area with her husband where she settled to raise her family. Once in Boston, she worked for a large online internet recruiting company but quickly realized her true passion was health care. Upon completing nursing school, she worked as a staff nurse at two Boston area hospitals including Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital where she worked on the Stroke/Neurology Unit and MetroWest Medical Center where she worked as a Peri-operative Nurse. Kimberley worked as a Registered Nurse for 12 years before becoming a Nurse Practitioner. While Kimberley studied for her Master’s degree and trained clinically to become a Nurse Practitioner, she worked with a geriatric population at a Boston area Assisted Living facility, where there was a large concentration of psychiatric residents diagnosed with mood disorders, schizophrenia, anxiety, substance abuse, and dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. After earning a Master’s Degree in Nursing and completing Board Certification in Psychiatry and Mental Health, she worked for a Worcester area outpatient psychiatry clinic where she diagnosed and treated a population of patients diagnosed with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, ADHD, schizophrenia, schizo-affective disorder, substance abuse and dual diagnosis disorders. She also worked closely with a Worcester area psychiatrist whose primary patient population was persons with anxiety disorders. Having this unique population allowed her to acquire skill in addressing their specific concerns and needs.
