Nurse Karen

Hi there! Here's a little about me as a nurse: I graduated from Mercy School of Nursing, after receiving a BA in Psychology at UNC Charlotte, and later completed my BS in Nursing at UNC Charlotte.  This is my second year at Odell Elementary School, and my ninth year overall as a school nurse, having started at Royal Oaks Elementary prior to serving at Odell. Before that, I worked in a hospital, and a pediatrician’s office.  I love the school environment and have a passion for children as well as for public health.  I love to teach Wellness Promotion and Disease Prevention. Your children are amazing and I’m glad to be a part of their day.

Office hours: 7:10 until 2:40 daily


I love being your nurse!

  • About me:

    I grew up in Waxhaw, NC, and have lived in Kannapolis for 17 years.  My daughter, Anna, is in the 9th grade, and my son, Logan, is in 1st grade.  We stay busy with work and our kids' activities, but when I have time, I spend it reading books! You can go so many places in the world and learn so much, without leaving home! I also enjoy watching movies, cooking & baking.  When we do leave home, "The Beach" is my favorite place.  I'm not particular about which beach, as long as there's sand and water! I've been to beaches in both Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida.
