About Karen

I have wanted to be a nurse since I was a young girl. In high school I worked as a nurse aide in the local nursing home and enjoyed the elderly patients for their wit, their experiences and respected them in so many ways. I also grew to respect and acknowledge how wonderful the care staff was and wanted to be like them. I worked in that nursing home thru high school and 2 years into nursing school
