Karen has extensive fertility nursing experience, with over 25 years of experience working in fertility. She has served as Head Nurse in four fertility clinics - two in London and two in the Hampshire area. Having recently retired from the NHS, she now focuses on caring for her patients in and around the Portsmouth area. Before she discovered her interest in fertility, Karen worked as a registered midwife and also as a nurse in Accident and Emergency depts. In both fields she worked in the UK and overseas, with a brief return to A&E work during the first COVID-19 lockdown in 2020.
