Pauline Kahabka is one of our return board members beginning her term in August 2020. Her Irish maiden name is Carty and she was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland and grew up in Holywood, County Down, Northern Ireland.
She graduated from Queens University in Belfast as a registered nurse and have specialized mainly in neurology, neurosurgery and spinal nursing. I have nursed in several countries, including going as far as the middle east.
I came to Arizona 6 years ago and reside in north Phoenix.
My family originate from Belfast, Co. Donegal, Monaghan, Leitrim and Fermanagh. My great great grandfather, Michael Maguire, emigrated to the USA in the 1800s and is buried in Iowa. I am excited to find more of my family who have grown up here in the states.
