Kara obtained her BS with honors from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI and earned her MD from Vanderbilt Medical School in Nashville, TN. Kara completed her OB/GYN residency at the University of New Mexico Health and Sciences Center, and then made Alamogordo, NM her home until 2009. She then became a practicing OB/GYN specialist as well as an attending physician for Presbyterian Medical Group from 2009 to 2016. Dr. Danner was voted Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center’s Physician of the Year in 2007, is a Fellow of the American Congress of OB/GYN and is board-certified through the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG.)
Kara moved to the Grand Valley in October 2016 and is very excited to join a practice that puts an emphasis on patient care and safety while ensuring that the well-being of the providers is looked after, as well. Kara has been blessed to have the guidance and example of her parents and grandparents throughout her life. She is buoyed by their strong work ethic, faith, high level of integrity and the determination to chase down every dream despite the obstacles that may linger down the road.
The Grand Valley is very appealing to Kara, as she and her family are passionate outdoor enthusiasts. Kara is married with three children, two bullmastiffs and one golden retriever. Her hobbies include basketball, hiking, adventuring through the woods with her family on their ATV’s, fishing, and bird watching. Traveling to different national parks helping her children earn their Junior Ranger badges is a favorite pastime. Kara also enjoys curling up with a good book and crocheting during her few and far between quiet times.
Dr. Danner is currently accepting new patients and would love to meet you.
