Karen obtained her undergraduate degree from Jacksonville University in Florida earning her Bachelor’s degree in Nursing. She started her career as a nurse in the intensive care unit, cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology lab.

After graduating with her Master of Science degree from Indiana Wesleyan, she practiced as a Family Nurse Practitioner. In 2000 she started the Health and Wellness Clinic at IPFW, was on the committee for the IPFW Health Fair and continued there and other outlying clinics within Parkview for 10 years.
