Kori Holmes – Special Events/Nursing

Kori Holmes has been a nurse at the Joint Replacement Institute at Saint Thomas Hospital for 7 out of her 9 years in nursing. Her role with the Walk Strong Foundation mission in Veracruz has been in working in the PACU, on the post op floor, organizing and writing up order sets and discharge papers along with nursing education at the bedside with the hospital nurses and their students. In Nashville she has been an active volunteer in helping to set up the organizational structure of the Walk Strong Foundation. The best part about working with Walk Strong has been to see the smiles on the patients and their families' faces. The families and the patients are humble, dedicated to having an excellent outcome from their surgeries and always so grateful for our care. Working with the Mexican nursing staff has been a treat due to their thirst for new knowledge.
