Karen has been a registered nurse for 4 years, earning her degree from Carroll Community College (her third degree, but she finally knows what she wants to be when she grows up!). As a single mother of 3, she relied on her strong work ethic and drive to place her at the top of her graduating class in nursing school. She then began her career at Northwest Hospital on the medical/surgical unit, working closely with surgeons. After 2 years on the floor, she shifted gears and began working for one of the plastic surgeons private practice. Although she feels she’s always had an eye for all things aesthetics, while working for the plastic surgeon, her passion really grew. She has been trained by Allergan, Galderma, Sciton lasers, and the plastic surgeon herself on laser hair removal, profractional lasers, injectables, RF microneedling, PRP, and body sculpting procedures to name some of her favorites. She believes her aesthetic eye, coupled with her continuing education help cultivate into the best possible outcomes for her patients.
Fun Fact: Dr. Apgar actually delivered two of Karen’s children, she once dated a kid that was on “The Mickey Mouse Club,” and she went to school/was friends with a member of NSync. (She won’t tell us who or if said member was also the boy in the Mickey Mouse club…hmmmm…please let it be JT!)
