Johnson was nominated by multiple patients for the Rose Award. She was recognized for her ability to motivate her patients, while always remaining patient, caring and supportive of their progress.

“It’s nice when someone likes their work and in turn gives that extra push you may need to get better,” said a patient. “Kara has seen what I can and can’t do. She has increased my capabilities each time she worked with me.”

Johnson received a Rose Award certificate and pin, a bouquet of roses to display in her department, a hand-woven basket from Uganda and a cake that she shared with her co-workers.
