Rose Kihara

Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)

Originally from Kenya, Rose moved to the United States to pursue higher education. She first attended Worcester State University in Massachusetts, where she concentrated in general studies. She later attended Fitchburg State University and graduated in 2005 with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Following graduation, Rose moved to Waterbury, CT, where she worked as a Registered Nurse (RN) at St. Mary's Hospital in the General ICU. While there, she enrolled at Quinnipiac University in their Graduate Family Nurse Practitioner Program. She graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2009 and shortly after joined the Charter Oak Health Center, where she worked as a family nurse practitioner.

Rose later returned to Massachusetts to join her family. During this time, she worked at Reliant Medical Group's internal medicine department for three years. She then joined their urgent care center, where she worked for three and a half years.

In 2018, Rose saw an opportunity to start her own clinic. Thus, Family Health Care & Walk In Center was founded in order to provide quality care to people of all ages from throughout the community. 

Apart from treating patients, Rose enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. Her hobbies include cooking, traveling, and photography.
