Dr. Kimberly Farry will be the speaker at this Saturday's Davis & Elkins College Pinning Ceremony, scheduled at 4 p.m. in Harper-McNeeley Auditorium.
A D&E trustee and graduate, Farry is a physician for Associates in Women's Health at St. Joseph's Hospital in Buckhannon.
The D&E Pinning Ceremony is a moving and proud tradition for graduates of the college's Associate Degree program in nursing. Events include the presentation of pins, presentation of roses, candlelit Florence Nightingale pledge and special music by two first-year nursing students, Lynnette M. Cross and Casandra A. Wallace.
Farry's talk is titled, "What They Did Not Tell You in School." After graduating from Davis & Elkins College with a Bachelor of Science in 1985, Farry attended Temple University School of Medicine, receiving her Master of Science in 1987 and her Doctor of Medicine in 1991. She has been in practice as a physician in Buckhannon since 1996, and has worked as both a hospital-employed physician at St. Joseph's Hospital as well as in private practice.
In 2004, Farry established her own private practice Associates for Women's Health PLLC in Buckhannon. This facility employs one physician, four certified nurse midwives, one nurse practitioner, two physician's assistants and staff totaling 21 members. Currently, Farry has returned to St. Joseph's Hospital where Associates for Women's Health is now housed in new offices, which opened this year. The office continues to provide services to women at Barbour County Health Department and also at a facility owned by Farry in Elkins.
Farry has been an active member of the Davis & Elkins College Board of Trustees since 2006 and a member of the Religious Life and Student Life Committees. She and her husband, Glenn Davis, own a farm and are the parents of a son, Dakota Davis, who is pursuing an electrical and computer engineering degree at Drexel University.
Parking for all the Pinning Ceremony will be directed to the back campus parking lot, accessible via Harpertown Road. The event is open to the public.
