Kara Ruff - May 2018 to August 2018

Kara joined the team at BC CAHS in May of 2018 as a Co-op student from the University of Victoria. Kara is a second year student majoring in Microbiology. She declared Microbiology due to her fascination with what the eye can’t see, and her surprise at how bacteria and viruses are so small, but can have such a large impact. At BC CAHS, Kara will assist on various projects and some diagnostic work. She is very excited to get some hands-on work experience in the lab, expand her knowledge on fish health and learn new laboratory techniques. Kara has lived in Campbell River her whole life and is very glad to have obtained a Co-op position with BC CAHS. In her spare time, Kara enjoys hiking, camping, and playing volleyball.
