Professional & Personal Background
Karen has over 18 years experience in the medical field in a wide variety of positions such as an EMT, an emergency room tech, and a phlebotomist. Just shy of her 40th birthday, and in search of a new realm to provide care, Karen went back to school to become a licensed substance abuse counselor. Karen strongly believes in the Forest County Potawatomi Community and is inspired daily by its perseverance and dedication to recovery.
The northwoods has been Karen’s home her whole life. She and her family love spending time outdoors, especially exploring Lake Superior and tending to the animals on their hobby farm.
