Cara Ahlstrom

About Cara:

Cara’s love lies in working with pediatric patients and their parents as partners in their healthcare needs. She spent 10 years working in advertising before deciding healthcare was her true passion. She then obtained her Bachelor of Nursing from the University of Utah. She spent her time as registered nurse providing care to the most vulnerable populations of sick and premature infants at the University of Utah hospital. It is there she gained a love for supporting families with their goals and providing education that allowed them to be champions of their own health.

To further her ability to support patients in their health journey she obtained Family Nurse Practitioner degree from Weber State University in 2019. Cara believes in treating her patients with compassion, integrity, and commitment to evidence-based care. She is certified with American Association of Nurse Practitioners and is committed to continuing education. While Cara enjoys skiing, hiking, and reading in her free time, her favorite past time is spending time with her husband and three little boys.

Parent Feedback

We really appreciate the flexibility with sick visits, we’re often able to have our kids seen on the same day that we call. Their staff is always helpful and friendly. Dr. Pruitt always does a great job with our young ones.
