Karen qualified as a pharmacist in 1989 from Kings College, London. She has worked in various industrial, hospital and community pharmacy positions including being an area manager for a large multiple. Karen joined the NHS as Pharmaceutical Adviser in 1998. In 2004 she joined Wallingbrook as the first pharmacist partner in general practice and made headlines nationally. She since pioneered the role of a prescribing practice pharmacist and was profiled by Guardian in 2006.
She believes in delivering a high quality personal and professional service. In 2007, she was awarded 'Pharmacy Professional of the Year' and was also given a special award for 'Outstanding Contribution to Primary and Community Care' by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain. This role is now being funded nationally by NHS England to ensure other practices have a practice pharmacist in their team.
Karen was appointed Executive Partner in 2010 in recognition of her business and organisational development skills to ensure Wallingbrook continues to flourish through challenging times ahead.
Karen is married and enjoys the pandemonium of living with her blended family.
