Karen is a well-rounded and talented addition to the Infusion Solutions team. She has had a diverse work history, including physician liaison for two hospitals, dental assistant, and para-educator (her favorite, of course!) Additionally, she has is a licensed pharmacy technician and has a history of medical billing, so she can do just about anything around here. Currently, her focus here at Infusion Solutions is on intakes and authorizations.
Karen was born and raised in the Bay area, one of three children. She is married and has three kids of her own, and by all accounts the family is very close. Karen worked a little bit while raising them, but mostly she volunteered in hospitals and the classroom while the kids were young. She was very active in this regard; her daughter Christine (who also works for us in Reimbursement) reports that she cannot recall a time when her mother was not in her classroom. And Karen’s ability to whip up snacks, brown bag lunches, and meals for a hungry group of kids is legendary. To this day, Christine’s friends (now all grown up) still want to hang out with Karen, probably because she fed them constantly all those years. Suffice it to say, Karen is kind, gracious, and very pleasant to everyone she encounters. Our patients and referral sources will certainly like her.
Outside of work, Karen likes to garden, travel, kayak, cook, and spend quality time with her family. They don’t have any dogs at present, but that is going to change once they find their ideal spot here in Whatcom County. I am hoping that once they find their dream location, she will have me over for dinner.
