The Rest of the Story . . .

Being a Nurse 
As a child I grew up wanting to be a nurse.  That was my goal.  My idols were Clara Barton and Florence Nightingale.

In 1969 I accomplished that goal and graduated with a Registered Nurse Degree from St. Elizabeth’s School of Nursing in Yakima, Washington.  After nurses training I decided to join the Air Force as a Flight Nurse and evacuate soldiers from Vietnam.  I joined the Air Force with a two year commission as an officer and was assigned to Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. Here I was, a small town girl from Yakima, Washington stationed at one of the most prestigious bases.  I loved being an officer and nurse caring for the soldiers.  In 1971 I was honorably discharged as a 1st Lt. and as a Veteran I’m proud I have served.

In 1974 I went to Chapman College in California, to obtain my Bachelor of Science Degree. (Thank you G.I. Bill)

In 1976 became an Occupational Health Nurse at American Home Foods Plant in Vacaville, California.  It was a new learning experience in nursing.  This led me to one of my most favorite jobs, being the first Occupational Health Nurse at Anheuser Busch start up plant at Fairfield, California.

1978 I found myself in Izmir Turkey, teaching English to Turkish students at the Turkish American Association.  What a wonderful experience!

1979 in Yakima, Washington I was nursing again.  For the next 11 years I worked in all types of nursing including hospital, doctor’s offices, and long term care facilities..

About Karen

My Happy Place

Being a Hypnotherapist 
In the late 1980’s I was beginning to look around for alternative types of nursing that would allow me to continue helping others.

In 1991, serendipitously I met a Hypnotherapist who was also a nurse.  I thought to myself, “This is perfect, I could do this, I would love to do this!”  I now had a new purpose that would fit all my needs and continue to allow me to help others.  I became a Certified Hypnotherapist and have never looked back.

In 1994 I opened my hypnotherapy practice in Tucson And for over 26 years I've been helping others fulfill their goals and dreams.
