Staff Nurse

Curious, mischievous, teasing, flirty, a firecracker with a filthy laugh, Cara is a welcome addition to AAU. Sociable at work and yet surprisingly private outside, she enjoys a bit of banter with the blokes on the ward, but with looks like this, she will never be mistaken for one of the lads.

Gets annoyed if men feel they need to protect her; she can take care of herself. Impulsive, restless, impatient, Cara can also be hot headed, with an occasionally sharp tongue, but, whatever it might cost Cara, as a cracking nurse, she always puts her patients’ needs first.
