Happy to assist as would like to ask what a CRA is as there are many listings for what this can mean. Please advise as I will then go ahead to research something similar without the travel.

Clinical research associate, also sometimes referred to as a site monitor. Very generally, they ensure clinical trials are being conducted according to the sponsors protocol and federal guidelines.

Thank you for the explanation of the work done by a CRA.
As for careers similar to what a CRA might do and can be done either at home or at a local office, compare these choices that are listed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

I Went ahead to research positions within CRA that are limited in travel as these listed below are local in any travel required and some are even home based:
