About Karen

During my nearly 10 years working with hospice and end of life patients, I feel I have a greater understanding and compassion for those who are acutely and chronically ill and those facing an end of life illness or long term diagnosis. My strongest traits are honesty, dependability, compassion and integrity. Patients have taught me some of life's most important lessons and I'm grateful to each individuals who entrusts their care to me and allows me to assist them at a difficult point in their life.
