Karen

Registered Nurse

“I became a nurse because I wanted to care for and love people. After all these years, I still know that nursing is where I belong. It is the work God has called me to do.”

“Laughter is the best medicine, and we laugh a lot!” Karen says. “Independence Health & Therapy is a fun place to be. Not many places of employment offer this.”

Having been a registered nurse for 37 years, Karen has a vast amount of knowledge and a variety of experiences. Ultimately, she was drawn to Independence Health & Therapy because of the peaceful, home-like environment. She knew this would be a rewarding place to finish out her career.

“The clients are number one and being able to be with them every day is what I value most. It gives me opportunity to really get to know and care deeply for each of them. I also get to know their families who are equally as special. Being able to provide support, direction, and reassurance for them is a blessing.”
