Karin Ippolito is a nurse at INOVA. Karin attends Crossroads with her brother Chris. A couple of weeks ago Chris wrote us a note wanting to share Karin’s story. This is what he wrote:
My sister, Karin, attends Crossroads and is a nurse here in Loudoun county. Her unit cares for very sick individuals, more than a few of which now include those with COVID-19. Beyond being exposed to the virus, she must self quarantine...so it’s been nearly two months since we’ve been able to have real contact with her (we celebrated her birthday a few weeks ago in the street in front of her house).
Under ‘normal’ conditions her work is stressful; now as you can imagine, it’s exponentially more so. This past week was tough with an increase in COVID cases, but she is staying strong and positive as she cares for the sick and is present for those who are alone.
Let us show our appreciation for her dedication and hard work; we know Karin would love a note from you!
