November Staff Spotlight: Karina Torres, RN

Meet this month’s Staff Spotlight, Karina Torres, RN.  She has been with Ryan House since it opened nearly 13 years ago! Read on to learn even more great things about her.  

What is one unique thing people don’t know about you, like a hobby, a former profession, or a place you’ve visited? 

I ran track in high school, and a cool place I visited was Chichen Itza in Yucatan, Mexico.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

Super Eating Power ( I can eat whatever I want). Calories will turn into energy and give me super strength without gaining weight.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

A pediatrician

What is your favorite kind of music and/or band? 

I love most genres, pop music, hip hop, Latin pop, and rock. You name it anything with good rhythm. 

If you could have dinner with anyone, who would you choose?

Hard choice. So I’d take both Betty White and Dwayne Johnson. ????

What is one thing you cannot live without?

Caffeine and working out – it’s what keeps me going.

What do you consider your motto in life?

Live each day as if it were your last.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with the Ryan House community?

I feel so lucky to work at Ryan House and be able to care for all the wonderful kiddos.
